Welcome to A Better World Café, opened since Oct. 21, 2009. This is a community kitchen, currentlyserving lunch Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. The café’s purpose is to help make a sustainable world where all may eat. Our menu is seasonal and always changing. Here’s our menu. You select your portions and pay a fair price through one of the following options:
This new kind of cafe reduces food waste, since customers choose their own portion sizes. All our to-go containers are biodegradable. It helps global neighbors because the coffees and teas are fairly traded. The cafe uses seasonal foods--grown, cooked, and served in ways that make sense for the environment and for the customer's budget.
Creating livable wage jobs, the cafe employs skilled workers who have been trained at Elijah's Promise Culinary School, and also utilizes volunteers -- some working in exchange for food, others just pitching in to create sustainable eating for all.
On-the-job training and employment opportunities for low-income adults and youth are built into the operation. An array of healthy eating choices helps provide the dietary means for people to improve health and reduce obesity, developing a healthier community.
The best way to keep up with the cafe is by reading the blog, facebook and/or twitter, where you will receive all the latest news, events, menus, and changes.
