Food-A-Roma reflects SkillsConnection’s commitment to design and implement innovative and practical opportunities for our participants to enter or return to the workforce.

We work with a supportive and flexible learning model that enhances independent living skills, provides practical education in literacy and numeracy and offers a real opportunity for people to improve their employability in either open or supported employment.

SkillsConnection’s training group educates participants through hospitality training providing the opportunity for them to undertake formal class work for nationally recognised, accredited hospitality training.

Food-A-Roma supports this training by providing opportunities for practical application of hospitality skills including:

  • Healthy living and eating
  • Menu planning
  • Costing, budgeting and purchasing
  • Food handling
  • Food preparation
  • Customer service
  • Workplace Health & Safety

Underpinning these practical skills, Food-A-Roma also fosters the development of life skills in areas such as:

  • Personal grooming
  • Time management
  • Personal responsibility
  • Communication with customers, colleagues and suppliers
  • Building friendships and working relationships
  • Teamwork
  • Independent living skills, planning, shopping and nutrition
  • Money handling skills


Food-A-Roma participants are supported and encouraged by highly experienced staff with qualifications in both the hospitality and disability fields.

Since its inception in April 2006 as a small one day per week lunch order delivery service with only 15 customers, Food-A-Roma has expanded both the scope and range of its services and its customer base.

Initially the Food-A-Roma group partnered with a local restaurateur who provided mentoring and access to a commercial kitchen facility.
In 2011 Food-A-Roma entered into an agreement with Colac Football and Netball Club (The Colac Tigers) and moved its food preparation activities to the kitchens at the Central Reserve Football Ground.
From this new base Food-A-Roma now operates over four and a half days and prepares over a hundred meals a day, as well as catering for corporate functions and private parties.
The number of clients participating in the Food-A-Roma program has also grown from 3 in 2006 to 15 at the end of 2011.

Food-A-Roma offers the following services to the Colac community:

  • Phone in lunch orders delivered to the home or workplace
  • Preparation of menu-based lunches of choice for Senior Citizen groups
  • School Canteen services
  • Private and corporate catering
  • Evening meals selected from a healthy menu and delivered to the home or workplace

While Food-A-Roma runs as a commercial business all the income generated from its activities is returned to the program.
