MoBro Cafe Success
After a successful bid for funding from the Movember Foundation, the MoBro café was born and resulted in 10 men taking over the café in the For All Healthy Living Centre to serve up healthy ‘Mangrub’.
As ambassadors to change people’s perception of what counts for healthy food, the MoBro café also allowed the group to come together and share their experiences and improve ties with the local community by offering a new and exiting menu for local people to try. The men also got their food hygiene certificates and being part of the group has greatly improved their confidence.
Building on the success of the first MoBro café an application for additional funding is now being put together which, if successful, will increase the opportunities for men in Weston-super-Mare to become part of the MoBro café team, so watch this space!
The Movember Foundation aims to “change the face of men’s health” by getting men to speak out about issues that affect them such as depression, anxiety and isolation.
The project is run in partnership with The For All Healthy Living Centre who lead the project, Growing Together, Westonworks, Somerset Public Health Teams and most importantly, then men who took part.
