On this month's First Thursday, the SCCA is hosting a get-together at Soul Food, a social enterprise designed to empower persons with special needs. They have prepared for us a selection of canapes and wines to savour over the course of the evening and the founder of Soul Food, Gerald Png will share how his social enterprise benefits members of our community.
Join us on 7 March 2019 for a good cause and support our friends with special needs.
*This event is strictly for in-house counsel and long-term sponsor firms.
SOUL FOOD ENTERPRISE PTE LTD – MADE BY MANY HANDS
Since its incorporation in January 2008, our mission has been to equip, employ and empower persons with special needs through our restaurant and food production business. To give them a platform to contribute to, and be included into mainstream society.
With much plowing, sowing, encouragement and provision over the years by many hands, we have progressed from being a struggling social enterprise to become an emerging, sustainable food business whose products are made and served by the many hands of our dedicated team. We also aim to showcase our team’s abilities, potential and viability to other F&B businesses, corporations and individuals that may encourage them to “hand” them an employment opportunity and include them as we do.
Much time is extended to our staff team; for them to learn specific kitchen skills, food preparation and customer service in a highly commercial environment. And with the benefit of more time to learn, they acquire the confidence and competence to perform many tasks. We have been privileged by the opportunity to learn from them even as we train, supervise and work alongside them.
Employment-ready persons will be assigned to assist in the production and service of our home-style modern European cuisine. As our motto goes “Made by Many Hands” – every team member has a hand in the preparation of our home-style delicious soups, salads, sauces, desserts, appetizers and main courses. According to their readiness and skill levels, they are involved in the various stages of production and aspects of the business. They are our main workforce working alongside and guided by our leaders and coaches.
Besides training and employment, we endeavor to build a community where they may foster wholesome friendships and camaraderie; an inclusive environment for them to work and relate with typical colleagues and volunteers.
In their time at Soul Food, we hope that they will experience success as they are equipped, employed and empowered. We aspire for them to have self-esteem and confidence as well as a heightened degree of independence. That they may fully integrate as dignified, capable and contributing citizens in Singapore.
Soul Food is a registered member of The Singapore Centre For Social Enterprise. We have tie-ups with SG Enable Ltd through the Open Door Program and the SG Enable Training Grant.
Join us in offering persons with different needs and abilities a hand, and by supporting them for a meaningful future.
Gerald Png, Founder
