Caring for Our Neighbours
Vive Cafe is a vibrant Community Meal Program that was established in 2008 by Revive Church out of a need to support struggling families and individuals in the City of Maroondah, Victoria, Australia. This vibrant ministry is made possible through ADRA Mitcham Op-Shop, many dedicated volunteers from churches, schools and individuals donating their valuable time and resources. Some travel over an hour each way to help out at Vive Cafe!
It has grown from serving 30 meals each week to now 120-140 meals. We also provide a limited supply of fruit, veg, bread, milk and other items. All at no charge to attendees.
Our key objective is to continue to provide ongoing love and support to those in our community who are struggling financially, who are homeless, lonely, depressed and disengaged from society. The home-cooked healthy dinner we provide is a means of building community spirit and to provide a warm, safe place for people to gather together, to eat and share together – without prejudice or judgement.
We would love to make make a major overhaul to the venue which is run down and also purchase some catering equipment to improve on the menu we provide from week to week.

Health Screening at Vive Cafe
Health Screening by Dr Galen Comstock and some health professionals assisted by a team of volunteers was carried out on 5th June 2014 for over 20 interested patrons at Vive Cafe. They were given advise on certain lifestyle changes that would help them in improving their health. We are considering bigger plans for the future with God’s guidance!
