Kinfolk Food Relief Appeal


Critical Support Needed for Kinfolk's Food Relief Program

Although Kinfolk Cafe has closed for good, the spirit of Kinfolk lives on. Our sister cafe Sibling by Kinfolk in Carlton North now hosts our volunteer program and our Events & Catering business continues to offer ethical events and delicious food to greater Melbourne. Distributable profits from these ventures are now directed towards our growing food relief operations. In this climate, however, these profits are few and far between as our remaining businesses dip in and out of necessary but commercially disruptive lockdowns.

That's why we're appealing to you, our community, to be a part of the continuation of the food relief mission we started in 2020 and have maintained ever since. 

Each week we provide hundreds of nutritious and culturally appropriate meals, and 20+ grocery kits to Melbournians experiencing food insecurity. Many of our recipients (as referred to us by our partners in the community support space) are experiencing complex combinations of circumstances (like family violence or income loss) and conventional support systems are ill-equipped to provide for them.

Our food relief is made and assembled with nutritious, locally sourced ingredients and doesn't compromise on quality. We also allow the end-recipient to select the food most relevant to their household size and cultural preference through a custom-built ordering form. The anonymous feedback we've received from recipients thus far has been overwhelmingly positive, with many people telling stories of alleviated stress and amazement at the freshness and variety of produce provided. 

For the time being this program is dependent on philanthropy and community support. Your donation will help us make sure that more people can eat well, for good!

For context, a donation of $100 will allow us to provide approximately one grocery kit - including fresh produce like fruit and veg, home-made meals (and baby food where relevant), eggs, dairy and dairy alternatives, and more.
