Yes! YamDaisy has its first cafe! Coming SOON!
After a couple of years of Pop Ups we are able to announce our first really truly YamDaisy Cafe!
It is a wonderful little space in the reception area of the East Reservoir site of Darebin Health Services. For several decades it was a community co-op, and Life Skills ran a cafe there for a year.
Darebin Community Health invited expressions of interest from social enterprises who would partner with them, and promote social connectedness.
Thanks to our partnership with Reservoir Neighbourhood House, YamDaisy was able to apply. And we were successful!
Given the space and facilities, we have adapted our YamDaisy model to suit the working space. There is plenty we can do!
Our idea is to activate the foyer! People using this wonderful health service, all the local community, and the workers, can benefit from a buzzing cafe with beautiful food. We can be a bridge for the local community to find out about the services at the site (Men’s Shed, Community Garden as well as dentists and dieticians and heaps of great programs!)
And ofcourse we can work to our aim of making Eating Well Easy!
We will start small and grow!
We need to do a bit more work before we can announce our opening date! You’ll know as soon as we do!
Here are some BIG THANKS!
Thanks to Darebin Community Health for providing the space, use of a kitchen on the site, and lots of other support, so we can make the YamDaisy Dream a reality.
Thanks to Reservoir Neighbourhood House who are our partners. We are trading under their banner and their Community Project Worker is supporting us over this set up time.
Thanks to all the YamDaisy supporters who have helped us and encouraged us. Thanks to your ideas and networks and faith, we are ready to go with an excellent group of experts in business, community health, diet, and the food industry so we can make all the best decisions.
Watch this space!
We are updating the website so it has all the information about our cafe! Expect lots of newsposts as we develop it!
Best wishes to everyone!
