Our Stories

fighting food insecurity

Mini Woolies program

Woolworths Group's Mini Woolies program creates small-scale Woolworths supermarkets for young Australians with disabilities to build confidence.

In the last six years, Mini Woolies has grown to include more than 40 stores in specialist schools, post school providers and inclusive employment providers. 

Each store is set up to simulate the operations of an actual Woolworths supermarket, with baskets for fresh food, shelving for groceries, Woolworths-branded uniforms and even fully operational Fujitsu registers to give the students the best possible experience.

Patrick Misciagna, Woolworths Group Technology Director - Service Operations and Infrastructure, said: “The Mini Woolies program has been a truly rewarding experience for us at Woolworths. Working with specialist schools and inclusive recruitment centres such as Omnia to support the incredible work they are already doing each day for young Australians with disabilities has been a privilege."
