Rise Up Catering – Food with a Focus

A week ago I had the pleasure to meet Jayden Wilson a Brisbane Chef who has a vision that extends beyond healthy and delicious food. With his passion for food he has overcome incredible challenges in his life and now he is the voice and the action behind a cause that will change the lives of children and teenagers.

Jayden started his journey as a chef from the age of 14, this journey turned him into a sought after professional in the hospitality industry. With big commitments, responsibilities and highly stressful job he met the dark side of his career and found in drugs a way to cope with the demands and stress of the profession. After several years battling the addiction with the help of his mentor who was there for him and not just lifted him up and out of this dark and dangerous detour in his journey, but also believed in him. Among chaos there was light, guidance and God.

Jayden Wilson then became the founder and head chef of Rise Up Catering, and his aim is to change ONE MILLION LIVES by 2025. He goes to schools and detention centres teaching children to cook, teaching them about purpose in life and helping them to understand that there is always hope and someone who cares for them and cares for their future. He touches kids’ hearts and changes their lives through food. Every step counts as he opens ways to these children’s future by presenting them an opportunity, hope and career. His positive and caring attitude, his charisma and love are felt through his amazing food creations.

This mission does not come easily; Jayden has being self-funding most of his cooking lessons through his work. He has developed an incredible schedule in order to deliver FOOD WITH A FOCUS to these children.

What an uplifting and inspiring story. And yes it seems drugs are kind of rampant in the food service industry or least evening establishments I use to work as a waiter at night so I can atest I think it is the hours. So glad he found his way out what a great concept!
