Everything we have been working toward is rushing together now!
Our opening day is two weeks away! 29th of November (changed since a previous post, to give us a little more time!
We have had lots of donated goods which has been a life saver. And we are SO grateful to the people who have donated to our campaign. See our equipment list! We still need some things!
We have had a kitchen practice, and brought together a group of people to taste our fare. Big success! We are so excited about the lovely food we are providing.
We still need help! Please check out our GoFundMe Campaign! We need every donation we can possibly get! Every $5 helps! Hassle your friends, let them know what a wonderful venture they will be supporting!
I am adjusting the top figure again to account for donations we have been given outside of the GoFundMe campaign. I haven’t put in the things people have lent to us (sandwich press, pressure cooker, fridge!) because we still need to buy those things, but I am adding things that might be slightly smaller or different to what we really need, because at least they are ours! (microwave, 2 slot toaster)
This morning I am off to sort out our business permit, measure up for our cafe sign and menu boards and then staffing….
Staffing! We are almost organised, and have a back up plan, but if you know a wonderful experienced person who would like to work in our lovely cafe for the four weeks (10 – 2 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) this year, or when we re-open 24th January, get them to contact me immediately! 0402 377 839.
If there is anything you can do to help us, now is the time!
But, of course, the best help will be to come and check us out when we are up and running, in the foyer of Darebin Community Health, East Reservoir site, 125 Blake St.
See you there!
