Students transform work experience into community gift

CatholicCare Hunter-Manning’s Taree Community Kitchen has welcomed some new kitchen cabinets thanks to nine hard-working students in our community.

The students from Taree and Chatham High Schools made the items while participating in a work experience program with Bunnings Warehouse that the local Men’s Shed supported.

Over the three-day program, the teens got hands-on experience while knowing they would make a difference in their community.

Executive Director of CatholicCare Hunter-Manning Gary Christensen said with the growth of the Taree Community Kitchen since it opened in 2015, there was a need for a bigger food preparation space.

"We're thrilled to be getting these cabinets installed in our Community Kitchen. We're even more  excited knowing our community's collaborative effort  has made this come to life," he said.

"We're so grateful to Bunnings, the Teen School Group and Taree Manning River Men's Shed for getting on board to support this initiative and helping us to ensure we can continue serving food to those who need it most in the local community."
