During these times we are mindful of how difficult things are for our little charity cafe and the hospitality industry more generally. But then on top of that, there are those people in our community who were already doing it really tough, and for whom life has now got even just that bit harder.
Like people experiencing homelessness - and heaven forbid how many more there may be after this pandemic subsides.
And with winter on our doorstep and wet weather upon us, now more than ever do these people need our support.
So we have opened our own Soup Kitchen, where every $10 tax deductible donation pays forward a hearty cup of delicious soup for three people in need.
You can learn more about this initiative on our website (as well as other methods of donating if you prefer) HERE and more about our charity and our community on our Facebook page HERE
We are presently delivering soups for lunch to the companions of the Vinnies men's crisis accommodation shelter down the road, who eat their dinner here in our cafe every night. We are also delivering to safe houses for victims of domestic violence, as well as to a number of other not-for-profit organisations housing and supporting vulnerable people in our community.
And if you or someone you know are doing it hard right now, please just wander along to the café from 10-1 each or any day and grab your free cup of soup (from a social distance of course), generously paid for by those within the community who still have the capacity to assist.
We hope you are all keeping well and taking good care of yourselves.
Lots of Love, Mike, Tim, & Paul @ Cafe Outside The Square xx
