Harmony Cafe is a nonprofit organization located in Patchogue, NY.

Since April of 2016, Harmony Cafe has hosted meal events, primarily at the VFW hall on Edwards Street in Patchogue. We have a Pay-What-You-Can policy, which can be exchanged for volunteer hours, we encourage people to join us from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Our meal events are two and a half hours in length and include live music. Our events are socially engaging events meant to bring the community together, regardless of social status. We believe all people deserve to have access to healthy food an environment that is free of judgment and stigma.

We have used buffet style and we always wanted to have sit-down table service or family-style. We have decided it's time to try to host our meal events with a wait staff of volunteers. Take orders and serving our guests.

Our vision is to have a full-service storefront cafe to serve the public. We are working toward that goal. In the meantime, we will continue to serve the community on a monthly basis. We will host lunch or dinner meal events on the 2nd Wed of the month. The next event is 4/8 and we will continue on a monthly basis.

This position requires you to be available on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Experience in a restaurant setting is desired but not required. If you have the passion to serve and to learn, you would be a great choice for our organization. Check out our website at harmonycafeli.org for more information.
