Florida Cafe Accepts Donations Only For Food Year-Round
A Cafe in Bartow, Florida, has just opened last week and the items on it’s starting menu are missing a price tag…
Mosaics Community Cafe is opening doors in the next few days and they are starting their business with a “pay what you can” menu. No we’re not kidding! Volunteer opportunities are available at the restaurant in exchange for some meals. This selfless organization is a widespread movement to fight local hunger.
“I’ve always lived by the principle it is better to give than to receive,” Libbie Combee, the restaurant’s founder
Customers at the Mosaics have the option of paying what they’re able, or volunteering an hour either at the restaurant or a local community center.
Mosaics had been on the mind of owner Combee for 3 years now, but wasn’t able to find a suitable space for the restaurant until last year. Combee is also the founder and executive director of a local nonprofit called Leland Family Ministries.
“[A mosaic] represents a broken community. But when you bring all the pieces of the community together, you create a beautiful masterpiece.” – Combee
