We are now preparing daily Meal packs ready to eat in two sizes – to feed 2 or to feed up to 5. These can be ordered for next day delivery. We are NOT able to allow pick up from the Cafe so payment for meals must be made in advance. Delivery takes place between 3pm and 5pm Monday- Friday.
We’ve been able to mobilise our team and a bunch of volunteers to ensure that we can continue to generate revenue through this social enterprise which, in turn, ensures we can continue to employ people from our neighbourhood.
The somewhat short notice – on the implementation of Stage 3 restrictions in March – required us to build and deploy a website within a week to enable an efficient order receiving and processing system.We’re now looking at expanding delivery outside the current 15km radius from Norlane limit, to areas such as Leopold and Armstrong Creek.
The team have been very encouraged by the level of support we have received since we launched this initiative and see most of our customers returning to order week on week. Since launch in mid-March we’ve now prepared and delivered over 3200 meals along with other assorted pantry items from our Goodness and Grains Initiative.
