Drinking coffee and impacting people positively is literally Five Senses’ two favourite things. So it’s no surprise we get incredibly excited when CafeSmart rolls around each year.


In 2011, when StreetSmart Australia were looking to introduce a concept called “CafeSmart” where, one day a year, cafes donate $1 from every coffee sold, we jumped right on board! Every year since, we’ve rallied our cafe partners to join this cause and donated coffee to each participating cafe – helping share the costs associated with the fundraising.

We’re incredibly proud to see every growing generosity of the coffee community and look forward to helping this great initiative continue! Here’s how YOU can get involved:

Cafe Partners

Sign up and rally your customers!

  • CafeSmart will provide you with some marketing material to let your customers know more, as well as a donation box for anyone who want’s to give a little extra!
  • Five Senses will donate some coffee to help support your efforts – chat to your account manager for the details!

Coffee Lovers

Find a participating cafe and enjoy a delicious coffee!

  • Buy a coffee from a participating cafe and know you’re helping local homelessness projects. Win – win.
  • If you’re feeling extra passionate, pop a little more into the donation box.

One of the things we love about CafeSmart, is that funds raised go to grassroots projects that help homeless or support at risk people – in their local area! You enjoy a coffee at your local cafe? There’s a high chance it will help support projects in your neighborhood.
