The Trailer Project

The Trailer Project

The Vision

Raising money for refugees in Cardiff  by sharing food and culture from around the world.

We want to use our new Oasis Cardiff Trailer to cook and sell traditional food from around the world, inspired by the food our clients have shared with us during our monthly ‘Supper Club‘ and ‘Storytelling Café‘ . The profit we make will go straight back in to our refugee drop in centre so that we can provide more support, activities as well as expand on our integration projects.

 

The Need

Our Trailer has a lot of potential, however a certain amount of investment is needed to purchase the essential items needed to make our culturally inspired meals to go. Our Trailer is currently equipped with an oven, fridge, boiler and deli counter. We would like to expand on this by purchasing a coffee machine, cooking utensils, card machine, eco friendly cutlery, plates, bowls and cups as well as branding and merchandise for the trailer so that our customers will know where their money is going.

 

The Plan

We plan to make this Oasis Cardiff Trailer our own by introducing new tastes, culture and language to our customers. Our Trailer team will consist of clients, volunteers and staff from Oasis Cardiff. The project will in turn provide work experience for all as well as the chance to travel and see other parts of the UK.

We plan to purchase all of the equipment and training needed to run a successful Trailer this will include:

– Paid time spent by staff experienced in hospitality and cooking to train clients, volunteers and staff the best way to run the Trailer and produce the best food and drink possible. As well as learning from each other the best way to make traditional foods from around the world.

– Additional equipment such as a Coffee Machine, Cooking Utensils, Card Machine, Eco Friendly Cutlery, Plates, Bowls and Cups. As well as paid time for staff to teach our Trailer Team how to use all of this equipment safely.

– Branding and Merchandise such as a large sign for the Trailer and uniform for our Trailer Team. This will give our centre more exposure when visiting different parts of the UK.

The cost of this project is £8000. Oasis Cardiff, have been granted funding for £5000 and have been able to put that towards this project. The remaining £3000 we hope to find through crowdfunding and fundraising events.

This is where you could help!

Oasis Cardiff Does Cardiff Half Marathon

https://mydonate.bt.com/events/oasiscardiffhalfmarathon

Our lovely Centre Director has decided to run the half marathon this year to raise money for integration and family support workers at Oasis Cardiff. The money raised will encourage continuing integration in to our community for our clients, as well as valuable support for arriving families especially those that have been the victims of trafficking in their home country.

Please give what you can to help our Centre Director run, walk or march through those miles knowing that we have the support of our Oasis Cardiff friends!

Cardiff Supper Club

Oasis Cardiff now co-host an exciting new project called “Cardiff Supper Club”.  Every last Thursday of the month a Refugee or Asylum Seeker from our centre shares a dish from their country and teach us the traditions that shape their culture. It is usually a favourite dish or a dish that is special to them.

Each guest has the chance to learn about different cuisines and ingredients from around the world. It is also an opportunity to watch and learn how the dish is prepared before diving in and opening your taste buds to a whole new world.

Every week we enjoy a dish from a different part of the world so far we have enjoyed dishes from Djibouti, Uganda, India, Sudan and Pakistan.

Vegetarian and Vegan options are usually available or can be requested.

Tickets are £7 for each guest.

Please email cardiffsupperclub@gmail.com for more info or to book your place.
