Forage Supply Co is joining forces with students from Seaton High School to teach them all about the ins and outs of running their own business.
In collaboration with the school, the guys behind the sustainable food truck business are serving as mentors for a group of business-savvy students at this year’s WOMAdelaide Festival.
At the event, the students have been running their very own food truck, that’s serving up some mouthwatering vegan-friendly food, including what they are calling the best carrot cake ever!
The initiative is all part of Seaton High School’s Entrepreneurial Program, which connects students with local entrepreneurs like Scott Rogasch, the man behind Forage Supply Co.
“We love seeing their (the students) ideas become a reality and being able to help make it happen,” the business says in a statement regarding the initiative on their Facebook page.
Rogasch and his business partner former Port Adelaide player, Justin Westoff started Forage Supply Co as a way to be a force for change.
The food truck business which specialises in natural and unprocessed street bites uses a wide range of sustainable practices to help restore the balance in our eco-system.
They are also taking on our crippling food wasteage problem by donating what is leftover to those in need through a partnership with the Hutt Street Centre.
The program is also part of the school’s official curriculum, meaning that students can earn SACE credits by taking part.
Through a variety of specialist programs including their visual art, emerging technologies and advanced technology programs, Seaton is quickly centring itself as a school with a big emphasis on innovation.
So, if you’re headed down to WOMADelaide tonight, be sure to check out Forage Supply Co’s food stand to see these enterprising kids in action, and sample some delicious festival food including smokey red bean nachos and sweet potato chips.
