Our Social Enterprise Story

On September 18th the former CARI Café began being operated by Burnaby Family Life. Burnaby Family Life is a locally based non-profit organization that delivers a range of key services to children, families, vulnerable immigrants and refugees, as well as other individuals in Burnaby.

This social enterprise venture is a new initiative for Burnaby Family Life and our goals are to create employment for some of our vulnerable clients, generate some revenue to support the various programs we offer, but first and foremost it is to provide good quality food to the employees at the CARI building, as well as, some of Burnaby Family Life’s programs.

Not only do we have a new menu, but we will also be providing a catering service to local Burnaby businesses.

Proceeds will go to support individuals and programs at Burnaby Family Life.
