  • The Quiltmaker Café will be a nonprofit, fast-casual restaurant, offering tasty, nutritious meals and free-will pricing to guests. Our mission is to provide community and healthy meals to all people, regardless of their ability to pay.
    The Quiltmaker Café mission will be fulfilled by utilizing the seven main elements of the One World Everybody Eats model for the operation of the café.
    1. Social enterprise
    We believe trust is an essential part of building community. Organizations whose social goals outweigh profits build trust.
    2. Pay what you can
    There is no “suggested” pricing. Diners may donate what they can afford – in terms of money, produce, or time. Prosperous communities support and celebrate every member, regardless of
    their means.
    3. Guests choose their portions
    They specify what they want and how much of each item. Choice is empowering and reduces food waste.
    4. Everyone is welcome
    We believe food has the power to bring people together. Sharing a meal builds healthy communities, and healthy communities make a better world.
    5. Space for community
    We believe in a community-led approach to food security. A strong community results in long-term success for the organization.
    6. Opportunity to volunteer
    We believe in offering a hand up rather than a handout. An engaged community with a
    healthy respect for food and its preparation is important.
    7. Excellent food
    We believe everyone should have access to healthy and nutritious food. Strong local partnerships result in stronger communities.
