Do you like to plan events? Do you have experience in planning events?
Do you like helping your community and making a difference?
Are you a take-charge person that needs little supervision?
Are you creative? Do you know how to work within a budget?
Can you plan a menu?
Our events are a social event that always includes live music. (we have a list of musicians that volunteer)
Our goal is to increase attendance and share our mission while helping those in need of a healthy meal.

Are you available on the second Wednesday of the month from 9 am to 3 pm? (Event time)
at least 80 % of the time on that day. VFW Hall at 32 Edwards Street, In Patchogue.
We are putting together a team of volunteers that will exclusively work on planning and executing our meal events. (Please Note: You do not need to have all the above skills) Passion goes a long way!
You will work under the supervision of the board of directors and within the rules of the organization.
You will need time to give to plan the events as well as coordinating the events.
At this time it is once a month, however, that may change as we move forward. We are now part of the Patchogue Wellness Center and will be developing programs and classes on wellness.
We have office space at that location.

Our next event is on November 13 and it will be for Thanksgiving Theme
Harmony Cafe is a nonprofit organization, please visit our website at harmonycafeli.org.
We are unique in many ways, one main difference to keep in mind, is that we serve all people and
we have no separation. If a guest is in need (they pay what they can) for our meals, regardless of what a person can give, they will receive a meal. If a guest can pay then they will give the suggested donation, and maybe a bit more to help cover the cost of a guest in need. All people have a place at our table.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to increase food security and build healthier communities by offering high-quality, locally sourced, nutritious and affordable meals through a donation model. Our Vision: Harmony Cafe envisions a community where everyone has easy access to healthy, nutritious food and can live their lives with dignity and respect, regardless of their circumstances.

Description

Our Philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves to chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.

SINCE 2016

Harmony Café is actively working to address the foregoing needs in Suffolk County (in general) and Patchogue (specifically). We currently operate by holding monthly luncheons (24 to-date) in partnership with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post # 2913 in Patchogue and area restaurants.

Through these community meal events, Harmony Café has served over 1,100 residents, with an average of 55 guests per event. Our events feature live music provided by local artists, a three-course meal (including drinks), and a trained chef who maximizes the use of all donated local food as he/she combines them into memorable, hearty, and high-quality meals.
Our meal events are also socially engaging, we do more than serve delicious meals. Our events are an experience of togetherness as one community helping each other by offering an uplifting and positive environment for all our guests.

Harmony Café is a proud member of the established nonprofit restaurant business model developed by the One World Everybody Eats Foundation (OWEE). We encourage the entire community to eat with us, regardless of their ability to pay.
