What is  Community Meals?!?!?

Free Community Meals for All - Pioneering a Community of Friendship...About  Community Meals...

Community Meals (often known as ""C.A Cafe") serves a warm meal Monday through Friday, 11:00am-12:00pm. We aim to become a center of community life where health and education events occur, meals are served,and stories are shared.

Guests do not need to meet any criteria in order to join us- no questions are asked, and all are welcome. Guests sign in upon entry, but this is merely for the sake of keeping a count of number of guests served. Guests are welcome to sign an alias or merely write "guest" in the logbook.

We have an "If we have it, we give it," philosophy. During the course of each meal, we may distribute items ranging from food staples, hygiene supplies, winter gear, farm market surplus, and other goods depending on the generosity of our community.

Have a Hand in our Fate...

In kind donations of equpment and supplys are greatly appreciated and needed.
