madcow-cafeMADCOW® Café is a community based café connecting with disadvantaged and marginalised people and is situated within the Life Essentials hub.

Our community cafe didn’t survive COVID but we have revamped it into a cafe specifically designed to support the homeless in Bendigo. Our café provides an atmosphere of inclusion and allows us the opportunity to journey with people and ‘share life’.

We offer breakfast and a hot lunch are available 5 days a week.

Our cafe space is also used to provide emergency relief and crisis support to those in immediate need.

We can provide showers, laundry facilities, sleeping equipment for rough sleepers and many othere services.

Most of all, you will always be greeted with a afriendly face and a warm smile.
