The Rainbow’s End Bistro is the newest social enterprise managed by Rainbow’s End and part of our Food Services Group. The Bistro provides cafeteria and catering services at the 100 West 5th site of St. Joseph’s hospital.
Although all members of our food preparation team are all qualified safe food handlers, one of our main aims at the Bistro is to provide additional training in food preparation, food handling and food presentation. We recruit more team-members as the demand for our services grow, and the team at the Bistro and Colours Café are cross trained so that they acquire all the skills necessary to work in full serve food establishments or café environments.
Once trained, experienced team-members can elect to stay at Rainbow’s End or move to other companies and progress their career in food services. One position at the Bistro is held as a permanent employment training post and we work with community groups like the YWCA and Inspiration Place to offer 3 months work experience to candidates that they nominate.
