Testimonials
“Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the meal you and your team prepared for us. It was fabulous and certainly contributed to a very happy celebration. Thank you.”

– Jane Ross, June 2020

“We were thrilled to collaborate with the Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania to serve 600 potters a wonderful meal – hot and hearty soup and a range of sourdough bread in handmade ceramic bowls – called Pot Luck Dinner, the opening event for the Australian Ceramics Triennale. There was plenty of the delicious soup and bread, cooked with fresh, local ingredients and served efficiently by the MRC Tas team. We were delighted with the success of the dinner!”

– Vicki Grima – Chair, Australian Ceramics Triennale, 2019

“I just wanted to extend my thanks again for the wonderful catering you and your team provided at our event last Thursday. The feedback I have received has been very positive!”

– Red Cross Migrant Mentor Support Program, 2019

We just wanted to say how very impressed have been by your Service, and let you know that the food was very very well received by our guests, clients and staff.

We have had many participants at our function today, ask us, who supplied the catering, and we gladly advised them who to contact if they required catering themselves.

Could you please pass on our thanks to all those staff and helpers, at the migrant resource centre, who helped deliver today’s catering – and say we thought it was wonderfully presented (you eat with your eyes too) and let them know it was delicious!”

– Department of State Growth (Skills Tasmania), 2019
