About this event

The Salvation Army Melbourne Project 614 works passionately with those who live on the fringes of society within the City of Melbourne.

The heartbeat of Project 614 is the Magpie Nest Cafe. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the cafe serves free meals to Melbourne's most vulnerable community members and provides a safe, supportive, inclusive & welcoming community for all.

We welcome teams of enthusiastic, 'can-do' volunteers who will work with us. Tasks include: table service, taking and delivering orders, preparing tea & coffee, plating meals & basic food prep, welcoming clients, clearing & wiping down tables, washing dishes and assisting with end of day cleaning. You will be led by our spectacular staff members and your volunteer day includes induction and briefing.

Project 614 supports people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, those suffering from serious mental health issues, people affected by a range of addiction issues and people who are suffering from social poverty. Based at the top end of Bourke Street, the team have hundreds of interactions each day with people aged from 9 to 93.

As well as supplying meals, clothing and counselling, The Salvation Army Melbourne Project 614 also works with clients to help create pathways out of their current state of marginalisation. These pathways include training, volunteering, employment and accommodation options.
