In keeping with historical connection to St Francis, the canteen has been called La Cucina, which in Italian means The Kitchen.

La Cucina offers a range of meal options for our community, and is committed to sustainability. With a talented team of chefs at the helm, La Cucina takes pride in utilising the produce grown in our garden, La Foresta. The integration of freshly grown ingredients enhances the taste and nutritional value of every dish, ensuring that students, staff, and visitors are treated to healthy and flavourful meals.

As part of our Certificate in Hospitality Program, students are also given the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by working in La Cucina. This experience serves as a stepping-stone towards their certificate completion, allowing students to apply their classroom knowledge.
