The first of its kind in Kentucky, Grace Café takes a new and innovative approach to solving hunger and food insecurity by giving everybody in our community access to a locally sourced, fresh, healthy meal regardless of their ability to pay.
The Café’s daily changing menu does not have set prices, but rather a suggested donation amount for each item. Folks are asked to either “pay and pay-it-forward” for the next person, pay-what-you-can, or volunteer for 30 minutes in exchange for a meal. Cash donations are made anonymously, preserving the dignity of folks who may not have enough. People who can afford to “pay-it-forward” have the opportunity to help their neighbors; folks who “pay-what-you-can” have the opportunity to eat a healthy, delicious and locally sourced meal with dignity; and folks with nothing have the opportunity to work in exchange for a meal.
Our philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.
Grace Café is Not:
A Food Pantry
A Soup Kitchen
Affiliated with any religious or political agenda

Food. Grace. Love. Dignity. Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy!
