NEW LIBRARY CAFÉ
So All May Eat/SAME Café creates community through healthy food access and is the country’s longest-running nonprofit restaurant. The café provides healthy meals to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Each guest who comes through the door is treated the same, orders from the daily-changing menu, and then supports the mission by donating time, money, or produce.
After nearly 15 years of serving meals to guests experiencing food insecurity in Denver, SAME Café is expanding nationally, starting with SAME Café Toledo at Main Library. SAME Café is a standalone nonprofit organization with a proven business model. All costs involved in establishing the café and its daily operations are incurred by SAME and not subsidized with public dollars.
SAME Café will open at Main Library this summer. Stay tuned for grand opening details!
Register for the Library’s new personal and professional development series to ensure “you will do better in Toledo.”
Every other Thursday, 3 – 5 p.m. starting July 14, 2022. All courses are free. Here’s a sample of what to expect:
Meditation with Rachel Wixey
Five practices of exemplary leaders
Yoga with Gena Collier
