A hub for the local community
For Molook, the business goes far beyond a café. It is a hub for the local community, creating space for local suppliers to showcase their products and offering meaningful employment opportunities for local people.
The café houses a gift and craft shop, proudly stocked with crafts predominantly from nearby suppliers on a sale or return basis. A monthly food market is another opportunity for local small businesses to sell their products.
This runs alongside regular community arts and craft classes, as well as cooking classes for local children age 8-14 years old to teach key life skills and to educate young people about nutrition and where their food comes from, taking a “farm to fork” approach.
