Melbourne’s Newest Social Enterprise – Kinfolk Cafe
Tuesday, 8th December 2009 at 10:47 am

 The aim Kinfolk Cafe is to provide customers with a choice to direct profits form their sale in the cafe towards a community organisation.

At this stage, Kinfolk is sourcing current interest in Melbourne from community organisations that would like to be involved. It already has two partnerships with international aid organisations that assist children in schools in Ghana and Bangladesh.

The plan is to open in February 2010 on the corner of Bourke and Spencer streets in Melbourne.

Emily Hollosy from the Kinfolk Operations Team says it’s an exciting venture with the potential to become one of Melbourne’s leading social enterprises for change.

Hollosy says Kinfolk is based on the premise of providing innovative avenues for people to integrate ethical consumption in their daily purchases and to provide the consumer with a choice of directing the profits from their purchase to one of three projects that Kinfolk will partner with.

Hollosy says that they anticipate distributing up to $180,000 each year after general expenses are deducted, to its charity partners. This amount is of course contingent on consumer demand and an appetite for the ethical, organic products they aim to serve.

Kinfolk is calling for a wide variety of proposals. Organisations must be in agreement with Kinfolk’s mission and values and be able to contribute to the venture. It is expected that two Melbourne organisations will be chosen.

Applications are due COB Friday December 11 with the aim of finalizing the partnership in late December.
