Prepare Produce Provide (PPP) is the trading name for Live To Tell Your Story Inc, a not for profit organisation established in 2013 by a group of passionate educators in Western Australia. Our aim is to use food and cooking as a vehicle to help meet the needs young people in our community while providing training and support for them to develop future career pathways. Our programs create opportunities for the youth of WA to work with top chefs, local producers and other leaders within the education, hospitality, tourism and agricultural industries, to inspire and educate through programs that support and benefit a wide range of social and community causes.

Prepare Produce Provide (PPP) is a celebration of education, training and connection to each other and the land we live on.

Following on from the Food for Thought Festival (FFTF) Innovation Lab discussions that were cancelled earlier in the year, in response to COVID-19 pandemic, Sustain: The Australian Food Network (Sustain) is working with its West Australian, South Australian, New South Wales, Victorian and Tasmanian partners to reactivate this important conversation around “Courageous Leadership Enabling Systems Change” and the future of Australia’s food system.

This December, Australia will, for the first time, have the opportunity to learn directly from the leaders of the organisation responsible for the implementation of the Vermont Farm to Plate plan—by many accounts one of the most comprehensive and long-term food and farming system programs of its kind.
For more details visit the Sustain: The Australian Food Network Webpage.
COVID-19 has highlighted the vulnerabilities and inequities of global and national food systems. Even as Australia was repeatedly reassured of the security of its food supply, in 2020 we’ve seen panic buying that emptied supermarket shelves, rising rates of unemployment and food insecurity, and a disproportionately affected migrant seasonal workforce. With the critical challenges of climate change at our doorstep, and rapidly rising costs of dietary-related ill-health, the integrity of our food and farming systems demands our attention.

Across three webinars, Farm to Plate Program Director Jake Claro and Network Manager Sarah Danly will discuss how the decade-old program, recently renewed for a further ten years, has successfully increased employment, business creation and food security through collaborative, whole-of-system actions and networking, aligned to a shared agenda of a better food and farming system for Vermont. They will be joined by practitioners and policy makers from across Australia who will share state and local initiatives, and discuss how the Vermont approach might be applied to an Australian context.
