Ragina Scott Saunders, Founder/Executive Director: 

"My family and I were raised to operate our homes and business to reduce food waste while serving and giving from our hearts.

We have always had a heart for people in need and giving food where we can." 

For a significant number of Americans, putting food on the table every day is a struggle.

16 million kids – 1 in 5 – do not have enough to eat each day and lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), over 17 million U.S. households are considered food insecure.

We have a warm & happy environment that is welcoming to existing and new diners, staff, and volunteers at all times.

Destiny's Features:
Pay-what-you-can pricing
•Healthy, seasonal foods - providing local and organic where possible; We work closely with the local farms.
•Eliminate food waste daily
•Community Table – We have larger tables where individuals and small groups can sit with others and make a larger group that can cross social, economic and other societal boundaries.

Destiny Community Café is open Monday-Friday seasonal hours as a community cafe where diners pay what they can afford. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work.

Destiny Community Cafe is unique in the lack of a set menu as well as set prices. Daily selections are made using fresh, organic as much as possible ingredients, and funded by the donations of patrons. We are also partner with local farms.

Instead of a cash register, a donation box is available for one to pay what they they can afford.
Our philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity
