Cooking with Carevan
Today Year 11 Work Studies visited the Carevan headquarters and were immersed in the amazingly generous work Carevan under take.
27 July, 2022 Today Year 11 Work Studies visited the Carevan headquarters on Fernleigh Road and were immersed in the amazingly generous work Carevan undertake in serving the community of Wagga through the provision of nutritious meals. Under the guidance of Carevan Coordinator, Lynne Graham (a former teacher at the College), and a collection of dedicated volunteers, students were able to make valuable contributions in the kitchen preparing food, cleaning up and organising ingredients, and assisted in the processes involved in distributing food to community service agencies and reporting this in the Carevan system. Mr Forbes-Taber said it was fantastic to see students engaged in meaningful conversations with the volunteers they were working shoulder to shoulder with. Students were so inspired by those who give up their time so generously to help others. Carevan has been operating for several years and provide a valuable service to families and individuals in our community, and since January this year, Carevan have prepared and distributed 12,380 meals! Students learned about the history of Carevan and the faith-inspired beginnings that led Lynne to commence a Community Kitchen, that has evolved into what Carevan is today. Mr Forbes-Taber was encouraged that students were able to experience first-hand the importance and rewarding aspects of volunteering and to so clearly see Christian values being lived out in a selfless and loving way that reflects Christ’s love and sacrifice for us!
