Community Chef Case Study
NOT AVAILABLE ONLINE
These two films tell of the challenges, risks and benefits in taking a collaborative approach to community service delivery using the example of innovative delivered meals facility Community Chef.
Local Government Managers Australia (LGMA), in their role as part of the Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) commissioned us to create a series of films which would bring their written case study of the Community Chef facility to life. Our challenge was to take the sometimes dry material and to transform it into a story. We wanted also to show the challenges and hurdles the project faced in a truthful light, without diminishing the innovation and true achievement it represented.
Film 1: The Community Chef Story
Client: LGMA and ACELG
Length: 4.30 minutes
Community Chef is an innovative food production facility in Altona, Victoria. Jointly owned by 21 local councils, Community Chef makes low-cost, high-quality and nutritious food for elderly, vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community. Run as a social enterprise with the goal of supporting its workforce and helping the community, and built to a radical new design which is ultra-efficient and more sustainable, the facility could easily have never been built. This short film explains what Community Chef is and the unique factors which led to its development.
