YoFresh Cafe Evanston

Since we opened in 2014 we have committed ourselves to being a family space of health-oriented meals and refreshments, while regularly donating financially and through the free use of our cafe to the broad range of social causes and community efforts for social betterment.  We have partnered with schools, early learning centers; agencies for the physically and socially challenged; charitable foundations; organizations seeking space for public issues forums; youth scholarship fundraisers; local government commissions;  Rotary, Kiwanis, and many other service clubs and initiatives. The economic losses occasioned by the current coronavirus  pandemic severely jeopardizes our ability to meet our expenses, retain our staff, and be viable as a cafe and thus to be able to continue these important relationships..  We are grateful for the support we have received over the years, even being named a "Neighborhood Favorite" in a local poll.  YoFresh has been the vehicle whereby we have implemented the values to which our lives have been dedicated.  We will be deeply grateful to those who give to see us through this crisis and will return the favor in some materials ways when we get to the other side.     Thanks.
