New community lunch partnership

Behind the new community lunch partnership: Kelly Miller, Daniel Richards, Austin Stevens and Claire Rawlinson.

Kyneton Community House is joining forces with Little Swallow cafe to bring a new dimension to the weekly Community Lunch program.

Little Swallow recently opened their café for dinners on Friday and Saturday nights and a branch of the business is now supporting the KCH Wednesday lunches.

Daniel Richards and Austin Stevens from Little Swallow Dinners will be coordinating and cooking alongside the Kyneton Community House’s Good Food Hub coordinator Kelly Miller.

KCH director Claire Rawlinson was excited to continue collaborating with Little Swallow.

This new venture follows a successful partnership in creating a community mural that can still be viewed in the courtyard at Little Swallow Cafe.

“It’s always a pleasure to work alongside Dan and the generosity of spirit always shown by Little Swallow to the community should not go unrecognised. They contribute so much to so many. We can’t wait to see what they cook up!” she said.

“Through this partnership, and other generous community members, KCH will be able to keep the lunches going into the foreseeable future.

“The social benefits of the program are undeniable and to have the pressure taken off some aspects of delivery will allow KCH to focus on growing the Good Food Hub space in other ways.

“Programs such as Small Bites and Social Craft on Tuesdays will be able to expand their offerings thanks to this partnership.”

KCH is also hoping to kick off a Thursday youth hospitality training program in the near future.

The Community Lunch runs each Wednesday at the Good Food Hub, 35 High Street, Kyneton, from 12.30pm. A donation of $7 is appreciated.

The first lunch cooked by the Little Swallow Dinners team will be Wednesday, April 17. Everyone is welcome.
