ACspresSO and The Pantry
Welcome to ACspresSO! . . your local cafe, serving amazing coffee and delicious food, with memorable service. But that's not why we stand out from the crowd.
Your cup of coffee can help change many people's lives!
ACSO has been working with people who have been in trouble with the law or are at risk of getting into trouble for over 30 years and in 2015 we launched our first coffee shop and social enterprise - ACspresSO.
Dubbed “Coffee with Conviction”, ACspresSO has employed a trained barista. Trainees, developing employment skills who are on the Federal Governments “ work for the dole program”, will rotate through the cafe and the pantry program developing a range of new skills that they can take out into the world of work.
The pantry provides over 5,000 food parcels each year for people in the local community who are struggling to make ends meet. As for the cafe, all of the profits go into supporting our work. Your daily cup of coffee can create another chance for an ex-offender to break the cycle of crime and divert others from a life of crime.”
