Society Melbourne is a social enterprise with a vision to end youth homelessness.

It also believes in solving social challenges through entrepreneurial solutions. True to this, the organisation has set up a number of social enterprises to help young people currently experiencing homelessness break the cycle. From crêpes to coffee and bagels, all of Society Melbourne's enterprises provide quality food to customers, with 100% of profits going towards its projects in areas including housing, employment, education and training.
