Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower our guests by promoting health and wellness by providing education and access to affordable healthy food, set in a socially engaging environment, that offers a hand up. We use a pay what you can donation model. Good Health is a fundamental human right.

Description

The Change... Community-based solutions to reduce food insecurity, isolation and empowerment through education.

Innovation.... a donate based nonprofit community café that allows guests to set their own prices for a nutritious meal. Regardless of the ability to give, all guests receive a meal. Our meal events attract a diverse population of guests. Guests that pay less will not be distinguished from guests that pay full price. This gives a dignity dining experience free of judgment and stigma.

Community: Our café is open to everyone in the community. Our meals are not branded as a charity. The model is designed to bring people together from all socioeconomic backgrounds. If gives a sense of community because by dining with us, you are part of the community. We don’t have to be separated because of our differences; we need to be united because of them.

Our History. Since April of 2016, the harmony café has been serving the community. We have served over 1400 hot nutritious meals by using VFW hall as the venue space. Our vision is to raise enough funds to obtain a storefront café that will be open to the public on a regular basis. Harmony café is operated fully by all volunteers.
