The Street Cafe is one of our mobile programs under our umbrella MOD (Mobile Operations of Dignity) Squad,
and serves healthy, delicious food in a pop-up farmer's market style. The goal of the Street Cafe is to address food insecurity within the homeless community.
While addressing food insecurity in a general sense may not require anything more than access to food, the Street Cafe aims to provide healthy food choices in an effort to combat nutrition-related disease and promote emotional and mental well-being.
Our guests are allowed to "shop" for the meals and the produce that they want, while we also distribute information on healthy choices that can be bought at local fast-food restaurants with EBT.
Like our other two programs, our Street Cafe is a mobile program to account for the fact that the population we serve is transient in nature; and, in addition, going out to those living on the streets allows us to interact with people in their space without requiring unnecessary travel.
