The cafe opens its door wide to all who want a healthy meal. And if you’re able to pay for your meal and pay it forward, you can still grab lunch, and volunteer your time to help others. Believing in a dignified exchange as a way of life, if you are unable to pay, you can exchange an hour of work for your meal.  Drop in any time to work and you can have a healthy and delicious meal.  See our greater and let them know you’d like to work an hour in exchange for one meal. For those that want to serve in community service, we ask you help us for at least three hours in order to receive a meal.
