National Everybody Eats Week
August 25 @ 6:00 am - 11:00 pm
One World Everybody Eats encourages all Americans to dine at a One World Everybody Eats café during #NationalEverybodyEatsWeek.
According to Feeding America, over 41 million people in the United States are food insecure; and the annual food budget shortfall totals just over $21 million. In comparison, according to the USDA, each year Americans spend over $500 billion eating at full-service and limited-service restaurants.
What if deciding where to eat for lunch also involved deciding how you can make a difference in your community?
“There is power in how you spend your money,” says Julie Williams, President of One World Everybody Eats. “Empowered consumers can do so much more than a single organization.”
One World Everybody Eats is a national community of community cafés working to increase food security for all by providing a local approach to the global issue of hunger. At an Everybody Eats Café, diners determine what to pay based on what they can afford. And those who can, are asked to pay-it-forward to help a neighbor in need.
“…Places like these are changing and improving the world,” says David Mitchell Cichon, guest at S.A.M.E. Café (Denver, Colorado) a One World Everybody Eats Café.
