Kinfolk is a social enterprise where simple choices contribute to people and planet.  We re-direct 100% of our profits between 2 development projects in Australia. Our volunteer program is the heart of what we do – up to 45 volunteers assist in the cafe each week.  The program is focused around social inclusion and celebrating each persons unique gift – through this we aim to help our volunteers experiencing social disadvantage to gain skills, experience and employment opportunities (see volunteering page for more info)

In 2013 we decided we needed to grow to sustain the work we do.  We ran a crowd funding campaign to raise funds and thanks to our amazing community we raised $68,000.  Then with the support of donkey wheel house, the City of Melbourne we raised additional funds taking our total to $150,000.

We now have a commercial kitchen and are much more equipped to serve the needs of our customers, volunteers and staff.  It’s a massive win for everyone.
