Soul Cafe
EAT

Soul Café was established in August 2003 to serve hot meals free of charge to the highly disadvantaged of the Newcastle region. Today Soul Cafe provides hundreds of free sit down and take away meals each week. Many of Soul Cafe’s guests are dealing with issues of homelessness, drug or alcohol addiction, crime or violence, poverty, separation, mental health or illness concerns and accommodation needs.

Soul Café’s desire is to do more than just serve a meal. We aim to lift a group of people that are less fortunate to a greater level of lifestyle within our community through a comprehensive approach that assists them to work through their individual issues and to re-engage back into society. As such the meals provided are an avenue to link cafe guests with other necessary services including drug and alcohol and substance abuse programs, accommodation links, Centrelink referral, mental health counselling, refuge referral, haircuts, Legal Aid, Podiatry and a free doctor’s clinic.

The ultimate mission of Soul Cafe is to see vulnerable cafe guests reconnected with the community and placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose. Our desire is to serve more than just a meal or meet a need, but to lift a group of people that are less fortunate than us to a greater level of lifestyle within our community through a comprehensive approach that assists them to work through their individual issues and to re-engage into society. We are non-government funded and rely primarily on financial sponsorship from corporations and individuals and to a lesser extent on our own fundraising endeavours. We are a local community organisation addressing local community needs, supported by local community corporate and private members.
