F.A.R.M. Cafe’s mission is to build a healthy and inclusive community by providing high quality and delicious meals produced from local sources whenever possible, served in a restaurant where everybody eats regardless of their ability to pay. The cafe opened in May and operates primarily with volunteers. It is based on the One World Everybody Eats business model designed to help relieve hunger at the local level. The model began with one restaurant in Salt Lake City, Utah and has led to more than 25 successful start-ups across the country.
