Expression of Interest to Cater Diocesan Events

Now that the venue for Diocesan Council meetings and most Diocesan events has reverted to the new Anglican Diocesan Centre, the Synod Office is wishing to compile a list of local ACWs or other groups, who are currently providing catering services and who are interested in potentially providing catering services to the Diocese for meetings or events.

Depending on the size and nature of the meeting or event, this could be as simple as soup, sandwiches, salads, and squares/desserts which could be prepared elsewhere in approved kitchen facilities and brought to the Diocesan Centre.  Adherence to proper preparation of food and handling and known allergies is a must.

The ADC Kitchen space is not available for cooking yet (protocols are not finalized and anyone using the kitchen needs to be trained in the proper use of the equipment). Using the fully equipped kitchen facilities in the Great Hall does require a leader with the Food Handling Course certification, and adherence to the Anglican Diocesan Centre Corporation (ADCC) protocol.  At the moment, this is not an option for the Diocesan Office to use the ADC kitchen and, thus, we are putting the “call” out to local ACWs who are currently providing this service elsewhere and who would like to be part of this roster. 

If your group is interested, please email Pam Barkhouse at the Synod Office at [email protected]  with the following information:

Name of ACW/Group:

Food Handling Course (those preparing the food) – Yes or No

Food Preparation Offsite – In an approved kitchen facility to serve the public = Yes or No
