The Soul Platter Café will officially open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, March 8th.
The The Soul Platter Cafe is a business in which all people, regardless of their circumstance, can receive a healthy meal. “We are NOT a soup kitchen, but a fully-functioning café serving food with as many local products as possible.”
The Soul Platter Cafe is a “pay what you can” restaurant, meaning individuals and families will be served with DIGNITY and will not be turned away if they don’t have any … or enough money to pay for their meal. Their meals are paid by individuals willing to “pay it forward” and make an extra donation when they dine.
The café team trusts that expenses will be covered by generous people donating extra money when they dine. This business model works, and is proven again and again at other model cafes, who are also affiliate members of One World Everybody Eats.
The café will run on hospitality, love, and a willingness to get to know our neighbors. Soul Platter Cafe envisions a location where folks from “all walks of life” will gather around a table and get to know one another.
Other days and hours will be announced as the café acquires more volunteers. To volunteer, call 814-592-0227 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Soul Platter Cafe is located at 34 W. Scribner Ave. in DuBois, and is open Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., beginning in March. Other open days and times will be “as announced.”
