“The relationship between Food Ladder and Jobfind grew from a community based activity back in early 2015. It was established by a small cohort of Indigenous Women which was designed to focus on healthy lifestyles and healthy tucker. Over a period of 12 months, a long road was travelled. Limited support was provided by other interest groups. It was only as a result of the patience of Alex and Kelly from Food Ladder that enabled this project to have the positive outcomes that it has in the community today.
Both Jobfind and Food Ladder are seeking to transition this activity into a social enterprise for the Katherine Indigenous Women’s Association by June 2018. The work between Jobfind and Food Ladder has only just commenced.
We must also acknowledge that such an activity with a large capital set up, would not have been considered without the assistance of the Community Development Program under the support of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.”
