Matt’s Cafe


Matt's-Logo-for-WebisteA welcoming community meal in Lilydale, open to anyone in need. Come for the nutritious and delicious food, but come back for good company and good food every second Friday night in Lilydale!

Matt’s Cafe is a community meal for the financially disadvantaged and socially isolated people in the Lilydale and surrounding communities.

Matt’s Cafe’s major aims are;
• Provide a weekly nutritious meal to people who need it.
• To reduce social isolation of people who attend by appropriate interaction between other attendees’ and volunteers

Matt’s Cafe aim to replace our guests’ fears with hope in a safe and supportive environment, where they can not only enjoy a substantial meal, but experience a sense of a feeling of belonging, a connection to the greater community.

Held every second Friday evening at The Chapel, 42-44 Castella Street, Lilydale, our doors open at 5.30pm, come in for a cuppa, a snack and and chat. Our main meal is served at 6.00pm followed by a scrumptious desert.

DSC_0021Each Matt’s Cafe sees around 60-80 people coming along and sharing a meal, a laugh, and a chat together.

We would love to see you there!
