Every month sees an increase in diners and our pool of willing volunteers continues to grow. Meat and vegetarian options are available and we try to use seasonal and organic produce where possible.

The Dig-In Cafe is open on the last Friday of each month from 6pm – 8pm.

We would like to thank Woolworths for accepting us into their Food Rescue Program whereby we can access surplus fresh food that would otherwise be wasted.

This will greatly assist us from a financial outlay and benefit our community at large.

An opportunity to come and enjoy healthy seasonal food, good company and the chance to meet new people.
