Flashback to July when the team at Miami Community Centre were lucky enough to have Professional Chef, Cris from Cris Feldon’s Catering join their Thursday Kitchen Creations program. Thanks to a community member’s generous donation, the experience allowed our clients to try their hand at French-inspired quiches.

At Afford Community Centres, our clients will always have opportunities to build up their life skills and independence whilst discovering their passions in life.

“This was Cris’ third visit to Miami Community Centre this year and the clients think she is just fabulous,” said Team Leader, Kalo Patuki.

The Kitchen Creations program allows clients to experience the flavours of the world by focusing on a new menu each month, inspired by a different country.

Miami clients have used their taste buds to visit countries such as Greece, Italy, Thai, America, Japan and India through their unique dishes and being open to trying new things. As a result, they have expanded their cooking repertoire and their understanding of the world around them.

“Our clients always look forward to the cooking program, and on the day, it was a great day, with lots of laughs, jokes and smiles between clients & staff,” shared Kalo.

Afford clients participate in every step, from brainstorming ideas, shopping for ingredients, using visual menus, and then preparing the dish. Lifestyle assistants are there at all times to help in any way they can.

“Everyone at Miami is a superstar as they are all unique. They each bring lots of laughs to community centre with their styles and quirkiness,” said Kalo.

Afford is thankful for the regular monthly donations we receive from generous members of the community. Their support allows us to provide unique opportunities to our clients, including the MasterChef experience.

If you are ready to start exploring your passions while developing a new appreciation for the world around you, then Afford Community Centres are for you.
