Life Essentials Community Hub
Located in the heart of the Bendigo CBD at 214 Hargreaves St Bendigo, this is the home of MADCOW® Café and the place where people come to meet to share life, seek help and celebrate with friends.
Life Essentials provides affordable, essential items for disadvantaged people. This includes supplying free goods to those in need and free food through our Foodshare program. Whether it’s blankets for the homeless, furniture for families in crisis or just some basic fresh food, we try to provide a safe environment and a listening ear for people struggling with life’s journey.
We also offer general counselling to the public and conversational English classes to migrants and refugees.
