Building Relationships At The Café

The Café’s core strength lies in its ability to forge relationships between folks who might not otherwise encounter one another. All members of the community are welcome at the Café.

Providing a nutritious meal is only the beginning of what the Café offers to its guests. The Café provides opportunities to volunteer and become a part of the community through service and learning.

Why we follow the Pay-What-You-Can philosophy

Our “pay-what-you-can” model encourages anyone in our community to share in a meal. All donations are anonymous and any denomination is welcomed and appreciated. We create a space in which community building, rather than simple charity, is the underlying principle.
