Recently, while visiting friends and family in my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, our dear friend Cynthia took us to Table Grace Cafe for lunch.
Utilizing physical food donations from companies like Wohlners and Whole Foods, Table Grace Cafe is able to create amazing meals, using food that otherwise would have been thrown away! Look at this menu from a recent day of service:
Salad: Mixed Lettuce, Toppers: Craisins or Strawberries with Champagne – Berry Vinaigrette or Balsamic, or Ranch
Soup: Roasted Potatoes and Pepper Soup, Mild Chicken and Potato or Cream of Asparagus
Pizza: Antipesto or Roasted Brussel Sprout and Squash
From their website, their mission:
To foster a healthy community by offering great food prepared and served in a graceful manner to anyone who walks through the door.
