Non-profit community cafes are catching on across the country

An interview with Denise Cerreta, who started the non-profit One World Everybody Eats.

The community café, it’s a concept catching on all across the country. Open a restaurant, serve good food, let the patrons choose their portions, and let them price the portions themselves. The goal? To eliminate hunger, eliminate food waste, and create food security.

Denise Cerreta launched the community café ten years ago with her One World Café in Salt Lake City. From that start she’s gone on to found a non-profit called One World Everybody Eats, and that non-profit has guided some three dozen community cafes across the country, including some in Michigan, with more in the planning stages.

Denise Cerreta joined us today from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
