It is with a heavy heart that we farewell Hartley Lifecare as our ongoing caterers for ACTRA events. Deb and the team from Hartley have been integral members of the ACTRA team over many years, providing food and sustenance - from ice blocks and watermelon at twilight events, to hearty massaman curries at chilly 24 hour events. And we can't forget the toasties!
From ACTRA, we say a big thank you to Deb and the team for all their efforts over the years. We will miss you!
What does this mean? It means we are in urgent need to find alternative caterers for our future events. Due to our size, self-catering is not an option on an ongoing way. So we are seeking help from the broader ACTRA membership. We are looking for ideas on community groups and charities that might like to provide catering at our events to boost their fundraising. This might be for just a few events or organisations willing to take on all our events (from winter 4 hour and metrogaine to the annual 24 hour event and night/day event).
What do we want from you? We are seeking ideas and possible leads. The Committee would follow up with the organisation/group with more information. The caterers need to be familiar with, and follow, food standards for safe catering. Preference is for groups who already have equipment, but that's not a deal breaker.
