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. **New volunteers, please download and sign the Volunteer Agreement.
