If you walk into the Inveresk Tavern in the middle of the day on a Sunday, you’ll feel like you’ve been swept away to lunch in foreign country.

Every Sunday lunchtime a rotating group of local migrants take over the kitchen at the Inveresk Tavern. The Community Kitchen program aims to open doors, open arms, and open hearts to the new migrants within Launceston.

Owner of the Inveresk Tavern, Charlie Rayner, joins Brian Carlton to discuss the impact the wonderful initiative is having on the community.

“I feel that we’ve created a program that’s having a significant social impact, that’s certainly the main benefit…the difference that it’s making for the migrant groups…they’re learning new skills and becoming more engaged in the community,” Mr Rayner says.

For more information on their upcoming Community Kitchen events, follow the Inveresk Tavern on facebook.
