The Rise Up 


Humble Beginnings

By Jayden Wilson - Rise Up Catering Founder & Head Chef

"All I wanted to do is help others. But for the longest time I struggled with the ‘how’ of helping. Well, now I have found my ‘how’: Rise up Catering.

I realised I had a skill I was taking for granted. I have been a chef since I was 14 and cooking has always been something I enjoyed and had a natural talent for.


However, it wasn’t until I experienced Rehab in 2016 that I began to realise that many people struggle with cooking and food preparation skills. The consequence is that they rely on poor quality food, buy expensive items and don’t know how to make the most of the quality food they do purchase.

So now I'm on a mission to equip others with skills in the kitchen so they can provide healthy, delicious and cost effective meals for their family. Our mission is to educate others in food safety, effective use of leftovers, skills in grocery shopping, meal planning and much, much more.


Whether the context is a school, Rehab Centre, or community group; becoming skilled in the kitchen and building confidence, community and connection is what we believe is possible and achievable.

"I was once a drug addict, now my mission is to stand at the top of a cliff creating signposts pointing to a new way empowering others to step into their destiny."
