Glennie Supporting Tony’s Kitchen

The topic for Year 9 Food Tech this term was “supporting our community”, and our project was to make biscuits which we then sold to raise funds for ingredients to make meals for Tony’s Kitchen (the local charity supported in Term 1 by the Health and Hospitality classes). After we sold the cookies we got to work and purchased the rest of the ingredients to make the meals. We were assigned to work with a partner to either make the sauce and mince or cook the spaghetti. We ended up making 95 single-serve meals for Tony's Kitchen which will help a lot of people. 

We also gave them three huge tubs of soup which was made by the Hospitality class. Tony’s Kitchen was very thankful for our donation. Mrs Turkington collected the meals on Tuesday. They were running out of meals really quickly so this cook-up was a great thing to do as it helped other people in our community that are less fortunate than us.

A word from Mrs Johns

The girls worked really well on this task, and it was great to see some of the comments about the project…. 

  • “I would recommend this project to the younger grades because being able to come to school every day and sleep underneath a roof every night, it is easy to forget how important it is to help others that aren’t as fortunate as we are.” - Summer Bucknell
  • “The project is quite different to normal school assessments as it requires us to use real-life skills such as communicating with others, cooking, advertising our products and most importantly helping others.” - Dulini Dewage
  • “I would 100% recommend this project to future grade 9’s or other cohorts. This is because the overall experience of baking and cooking for the community was really rewarding. Having that feeling that you have just impacted someone’s life in a positive way is great.” - Kenzie Dwan
