Hot cuppa brings community warmth

Gateway Community Services provides a range of programs to support local people in need of social and economic assistance. This contribution has enabled the community service group to fund the purchase of a new coffee machine for their mobile coffee cart. 

The focus of Gateway’s Pop Up Social Cafe mobile coffee service are elderly community members who might otherwise be isolated in their homes. Gateway are setting up in various locations in Melbourne’s west following their official program launch in July.

Yarraville Terminal Manager Andrew McCormack said that the team at Yarraville Terminal were proud to support such a valuable local community initiative.

“The Gateway Pop Up Social Café promotes social engagement for members of our local community who might not otherwise have much interaction with the wider community. 

“We have been a part of the fabric of western suburbs for many decades and we continue to actively look for ways to contribute to the area outside of our ongoing operations which fuel the local economy and provide local jobs,” he said.
