The Community Café Movement

Based on the established nonprofit restaurant business model developed by the One World Everybody Eats Foundation (OWEE), Grace Café is unique in the lack of a set menu as well as set prices. Instead of a cash register, a donation system is available for patrons to pay what they feel their meal is worth. 


Our philosophy is that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity. Food will be paid for at market prices and donations of first-rate, locally grown produce and other foods will be accepted.

Currently, there are more than 65 community cafés operating in the United States and around the world!
