Setting out to change the face of homelessness, Streat provides support, industry training and employment for homeless and disadvantaged youth within their street cafes.  Located in and around Melbourne’s CBD, Streat’s food stands offer cheap and healthy meals inspired by street food from around the world.

Founders Rebecca Scott and Kate Barrelle were first inspired working for Vietnamese non-for-profit restaurant and vocational training program KOTO in 2004 – 2006.  In 2008 Streat University was launched in Melbourne, hoping to capture the mobile hawker style of South East Asian street food vendors.  Training youth aged sixteen to twenty-five, the six-month program delivers a Certificate II in Hospitality, work experience, paid employment within Streat’s cafes, social support and guidance into future long-term hospitality employment.
