Founder Kind Living Cafe and The Raw Food Institute of Australia
Hi my name is Lucy, all my life I have had an incredible love for animals, I was one of those kids that was always bringing home the next stray and my very patient parents just kept building the next pen for them…
Because of my love for animals I have been vegetarian for most of my life, but In later years due to health issues I was introduced to a high raw diet as a solution and the change was dramatic. I developed a passion for this style of eating and that’s what led to the creation of the cafe.
My husband Gary and I are residents of Maleny and have the privilege of living on a beautiful property just 13 kilometres out of town. Our property is the home of many animals, some rescued from a sadder fate, some just for the joy of having them around. If you arrive at our gate, you will often be greeted by one of our resident mini pigs, geese or cows, along with rescued battery hens, cats, dogs and a variety of reptiles. Our dream is to fund a sanctuary for abused farm animals on our little piece of paradise and help support the work of Animals Australia.

My work has spread and now includes making available information from the best in the world on raw and plant based diets for healing through The Raw Food Institute of Australia.
Kind Living Cafe was founded on 29th April 2011 as a way to support the process of educating people on Raw Food Diets and compassionate eating. Our goal was to show people they could eat really tasty food without any damaging effects to our bodies, our animal friends or our planet.
Our personal experience and those of friends and associates have led us to believe that we can make a change to the ever growing list of serious ailments we are facing by changing our diets and our attitudes. The Maleny Kind Living Cafe is no longer operating, but we run coaching programs and classes, so contact us if we can assist you to create amazing health and vitality.
