Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan): I attended the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency community development program open day in Werribee South, which was organised in collaboration with not-for-profit organisation Food Ladder and the Australian College of Agriculture & Horticulture. Kelly McJannett, CEO of Food Ladder; Alvin Gopal, principal executive officer from the agriculture college; and Glenn Howard from VACCA joined me. Their program provides nutritional food and job-ready skills to Aboriginal community members, which helps them find entry-level jobs in the horticultural industry. This program is a unique sustainability initiative that can be adopted to benefit and support many other diverse communities, especially refugees and migrants who can upskill to make a living.
