Description



Please join us as we celebrate the launch of Harvest Fair and our meal delivery service.

Harvest Fair is a social enterprise which provides flexible employment and skills development for women who struggle to find a place in our mainstream workforce. These women are our Culinary Creators, they prepare ready-made meals which are ordered online and delivered fresh to homes and offices within 25km of Adelaide CBD. The Harvest Fair menu has been co-designed with the team of women to reflect their individual culture and story, and includes dietitian-approved menu options which cater for the dietary and textural requirements of people with disability, chronic or acute health conditions, or who are frail aged.

Harvest Fair is excited to be launching as part of Open State for the Open State Festival. Open State is a festival of collaboration, innovation, ideas and enterprise, and is a fitting platform from which to launch our exciting new social enterprise. Harvest Fair embodies the Future of Enterprise, a key theme of Open State, where consumers are increasingly considering the social and environmental impact of businesses in their purchasing decisions. Harvest Fair is setting an example as an enterprise which can be profitable and sustainable whilst delivering positive social impact.

At the launch you will meet the Founder of Harvest Fair, Amy Orange, and the team of Culinary Creators who will be preparing delicious ready-made meals for delivery around Adelaide. You will hear from Moira Deslandes, Founder of Chooks, to learn more about why taking action to advance gender equity is critical for our community and our economy. Your ticket includes drinks and canapes prepared by our team of Culinary Creators.

We look forward to celebrating with you as we bring Harvest Fair to life!
