Welcome to A Better World Café, opened Oct. 21, 2009. This is a community kitchen, serving lunch Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. (with hope to expand into dinner and weekend hours in the future; for now it is weekday lunchtime only). The café’s purpose is to help make a sustainable world where all may eat. 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. It reduces trash because it does not use Styrofoam cups, plastic utensils, or paper plates. And 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.
Food is prepared at the Culinary School by its graduates and students, and brought to the cafe daily. 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.
