YamDaisy is a community food project and needs community help!
We are opening our cafe, but we are starting from scratch!
We are asking for donations of both money and goods.
We would love enormous amounts of money! That would make everything very easy! But the smallest donation will help us too! Please help if you can by donating at our GoFundME page (we say $6,000 but double that and we could get a very nice blast chiller!)
We would also love donated goods! Something nearby people (Darebin, Victoria) could buy and drop in? Or perhaps you have something in fine condition you don’t need any more? Contact me joyyamdaisy @ gmail.com or fill out the form on our Contact page.
We need some big items and some tiny ones! Here’s a list!
A fridge (a blast chiller if you happen to have a spare one 😉 ), a big strong easily maneuverable metal trolley with sides, two cafe style tables and chairs to go round them, an electric soup urn, really good sandwich presses (we probably need two), toaster, an electric pressure cooker, A lovely showy biscuit jar and cake tin. A fruit bowl. Trays. Forks, soup spoons and tea spoons! We have been offered some crockery but we might need more!
We need all the things for takeaway! Lots and lots of takeaway.
We have access to a furnished commercial kitchen (thanks so much Social Support Program), but there may be extra equipment we need (chef is checking it out and then I will update!)
We keep finding more things we need! Oh dear! Donate more money please!
We need lots of cleaning things, laundry powder (for all the tea-towels!), tea-towels! paper towels, a mop and bucket, detergent, a big laundry bag!
Some things we need to buy ourselves from money we raise: like our food storage containers and the jars for our ‘salad in a jar’ and our safe, I think!
And there are some training costs (staff: meet menu!).
If you donate to our GoFundMe campaign you can add a message to say what you would like your money to go towards. Any of the above! You might like to add a bit extra to subsidise a meal, or a cuppa, for someone in need. We will do our very best to follow your wishes, it will be lovely!
