About the event
At the heart of Hey! Food is Ready is a community committed to promoting diversity and inclusion while supporting local food economies. We provide a platform for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including refugees, immigrants, stay-at-home parents, retirees, and passionate culinary enthusiasts, to share their native cuisine, culture, and captivating stories with the wider community. By empowering these talented individuals and connecting them with corporate events, we create meaningful opportunities for them to generate income and showcase their culinary skills. Our mission goes beyond the kitchen as we strive to foster diversity in the workplace through the universal language of food. We proudly shine a spotlight on the rich tapestry of food cultures from minority ethnic groups, while wholeheartedly supporting local cooks. Join us in our mission to empower cooks and celebrate the remarkable flavours and stories that our diverse community has to offer. Together, making catering cultural, one plate at a time. 🍽️
