Rocky’s Tucker Time program earns regional training gong

Our Tucker Time program delivered with Skilling Queenslanders for Work funding was a regional winner of the Community Training Initiative at in the Queensland Training Awards.

The latest program had 13 trainees working toward a Certificate I in Hospitality while gaining paid work experience and training. 

Multicultural Australia teamed up with the Second Bite organisation which helped Tucker Time to collect leftover food from such retailers as Coles, Aldi and Nandos.  

The trainees accessed the kitchens at Salvation Army in order to transform those ingredients into wholesome and well presented meals which were donated to people in need.

Multicultural Australia also worked with the Rockhampton Regional Council to provide workshops to the public on reducing food wastage.
