Prepare Produce Provide

Prepare Produce Provide (PPP) inspires youth to reach their potential through innovative food education.

Established in 2013 by a group of passionate home economics teachers in Western Australia, PPP is a not-for-profit offering a range of unique and creative programs for youth designed to improve health and wellbeing and open pathways to further education and employment.

The flagship program, Djinda Ngardak, offers 30 First Nations youth (aged 15 to 17) from regional and remote WA the opportunity to attend a life-changing week-long camp. Djinda Ngardak takes a holistic approach, with workshops covering culture, food, art, music, dance and storytelling.

In collaboration with Indigenous students and with the support of a host of businesses and educators, PPP has developed Kepa Kwab (Beautiful Water). Showcasing locally grown and ethically sourced Australian botanicals, the non-alcoholic pink soda is not only delicious but designed to help fund and grow Djinda Ngardak.

The 5000Meals program prepares and produces Pantry Packs in schools for participating students, with chefs and volunteers engaged to source food that might end up in landfill and teach youth to cook nutritious meals.  The 5000Meals’ former Community Kitchen is now The Perth Dining Room, which feeds 50 to 60 at-risk youth each month, as well as providing them with a high-end dining experience.

In addition, PPP runs Zero Waste Workshops each month in the City of Bassendean, showing West Australians how to use food at home that might otherwise go to waste.

PPP Catering also offers inspired menus for events, using traditional ingredients and locally grown produce. Djinda Ngardak students provide the food preparation and hospitality service.
