Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Organization
Feed All Regardless of Means Cafe is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, pay-what-you-can community cafe that provides high quality and delicious meals produced from fresh, local, and/or organic sources whenever possible!
The cafe operates primarily on volunteer
It is based on the successful One World Everybody Eats business model.
Customers will pay what they are able. Those who are unable pay are asked to volunteer at the restaurant for an hour in exchange for a meal.
Those who can pay more than the daily suggested price are sponsoring meals for those who are food insecure.
Established in 2009
The idea for F.A.R.M. Cafe began in 2009 when a group of citizens who were concerned about the area's food insecure.
They discussed a community kitchen concept that was operating successfully in Salt Lake City, Utah.
It was called One World Everybody Eats Café.
They befriended One World Everybody Eats Café's founder Denise Cerreta, who visited Boone and offered valuable insight and advice for operating a successful community kitchen.
In January 2012, F.A.R.M. Cafe began leasing the soda foundation space in Boone Drug Downtown, a 100-year-old building on Boone's historic King Street. For decades, Boone Drug's soda fountain served the community as a social gathering place, F.A.R.M Cafe will continue in that tradition, providing a place for all.
The opening of F.A.R.M. Cafe in May 2012 would've been impossible without the tremendous support of the High Country community and their generous contributions. Thank you!
