Volunteer food preparers get first-hand training with international chef

Posted on April 21st, 2023 by Charles Grey

On Wednesday 19 April, the Oceana Group (owners of Lucky Star) in partnership with Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) and a local Youth Employment Service (YES) Hub, hosted a School Feeding Programme Demo.

The unique project is targeted at upskilling school feeding programme volunteer food preparers and also provides opportunity for trainee chefs. Food preparers from H.P Williams Primary, Masiphathisane Primary and Louwille High attended.  These schools are on PSFA’s feeding programme thanks to the support of Oceana.  In addition, nearby PSFA supported ECDs attended as well.

Hosted at the Vredenburg YES Hub, the demo saw the food preparers get first-hand training with Chef Alister, an experienced Chef who have worked locally and internationally. The training aimed to equip the food preparers with important skills in the kitchen as well as tips on how to align with the PSFA menu. Furthermore, Chef Alister demonstrated, creative meals that can be cooked with the existing ingredients supplied by PSFA.

Lulama Peter, a volunteer food preparer at Luthando ECD  said “The training was great, I learnt a lot of things I did not know before and that was more I can do the ingredients -there is so much we can do and I learnt a lot”

The programme will continue with further training at the Hub and with Chef Alister – and will cover topics such as health and safety, budgeting and portion control and planning.
