BENEFITING: Destiny Community Outreach Inc
Destiny Community Café is here to make a difference. We work every day to raise the level of awareness about food insecurity (hunger) in this country and reduce food waste. As the only pay-what-you-can cafe in South Carolina, we are a catalyst for change in our community. We are a 501(c)3 organization partnered with One World Everybody Eats Foundation (OWEE). For a significant number of Americans, putting food on the table every day is a struggle. 16 million kids – 1 in 5 – do not have enough to eat each day and lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), over 17 million U.S. households are considered food insecure. Our facility is located within Scott's Grand Corporate and Reception Center at 5060 Dorchester Rd., North Charleston, 29418. The Cafe is open Monday-Friday, 12 pm to 2 pm. Destiny Community Cafe features: * Pay-What-You-Can (suggested $10 for a full meal) * Healthy, seasonal foods, local and organic where possible. We work closely with local farms and co-ops * Warm, inviting environment that welcomes everyone, no matter your economic or social status * Community tables so you can get to know your neighbors and bring your entire family Why do we need money? Our Cafe location could use some capital improvements, including new flooring, a better buffet line, better storage, and larger refrigeration. We want to give our patrons and guests the best experience possible. Many of our diners come from difficult home situations. We want to be a warm, welcoming and inviting refuge where they can sit comfortably and enjoy a delicious healthy meal. One of our goals is to make our services available to more segments of the community. We are seeking to purchase a specially-equipped van that will enable us to provide meals in various locations. That way, persons with transportation issues may still receive a hot, healthy meal. Donate Now! Any amount will help. We love you and appreciate your support.
