A new community food trailer will give budding food businesses and community groups a leg-up to mobilise their trade.

Yesterday, the Shire of Katanning celebrated the launch of its new community food trailer, which aims to help locals have easy access to resources to help grow their businesses.

The trailer is part of the Shire’s small business support program and will be available for community groups and local businesses to hire.

Food vans and mobile vendors are a regular fixture at some of the region’s most popular events, including the Katanning Harmony Festival, providing tastes of the many cultures living in the Great Southern.

Shire president Liz Guidera said the trailer would be an ongoing asset for the community.

“Food trailers give an added dimension to street food, and gives businesses without access to try this avenue for potential future growth,” she said.

“To enable even more wonderful food to be available in Katanning, especially from our multicultural groups and community members, who are so talented in creating delicious meals.”
