Vintage Apron Cafe swaps your box of cereal for a coffee
The Vintage Apron Cafe at Capalaba is participating in this year's Cereal For Coffee Cafe Event.

What does this entail? Swapping a new box of cereal, preferably medium or large size with a four or five star health rating, for a free cup of coffee at participating cafes on the 18th of June.

The donated cereal will be distributed to local school breakfast clubs so that they can ensure the children in their programs get to class with a nutritious breakfast in their tummies. Currently, these communities are feeding over 1,100 kids each week.

Every day, one in five Australian kids goes to school hungry. This is either by choice or because of their home situation. This reduces kids' capacity to learn, robbing them of two hours of essential learning time every day.

Students who are hungry are: 
more likely to find it difficult to concentrate (73%) 
can be lethargic (66%) 
have learning difficulties (54%) 
exhibit behavioural problems (52%).

May, I love this place. I did an article on them when they first opened. The owner told me he thought the Redlands was a very friendly place, that people stopped to say hello. That's nice. Great article.
