Café for a Day connects young people (aged 15-24) living in Kangaroo Flat and surrounding areas with local chefs to learn about cooking, healthy eating, retail, food and work skills through through preparing a meal and serving it through a café space.

Over the course of a day, participants will prepare, cook and serve a yummy dish in a retail setting under the guidance of expert local chefs – to help them pick up valuable food and work-related skills they can use later in life. They’ll also have the chance to complete their Food Handling Certificate in the lead-up – adding more experience and knowledge to their personal toolkit.

Keen to get some hands on experience in the kitchen? We’d love you to get involved!

This program is targeted at young people aged 15-24. 

This program is supported by Bendigo Foodshare, Kangaroo Flat Community House, Healthy Heart of Victoria, Yo Bendigo, hoo-gah café, and Loddon Campaspe Multicultural Services’ Friday Food Safari.
