OUR MISSION: The Ecumenical Coffee Brigade (ECB) was established by Louisa Toogood who saw a need to minister to homeless and marginalised people within the Brisbane CBD by offering them food and a hot drink each morning.
Following her example, the ECB as a voluntary organisation, continues to provide these same services.
We are committed to ensuring that every day of the year the van goes out on the street to serve food and drink and offer a welcoming presence. We seek to offer those we meet respect and acceptance by treating all with dignity. We look for new ways of ensuring that the needs of the people we serve are respected and responded to whenever possible.
