On Saturday, April 18th, The Two-Way Street Project continued our amazing journey and ventured out to the S.A.M.E. Café in Denver.
This is an amazing restaurant that functions on the concept that all people deserve to eat healthy and natural food. They serve lunch every day and if you prefer to pay with money, you can. And if you can’t afford to pay with money, you can stay after your meal and volunteer your time to cover the cost of the meal.
They run their restaurant this way So All May Eat!
15 members of our group converged on the café and caught up over an amazing lunch. Then Cole from the café came and met with us to explain what they do and why they do it. Our gang asked a lot of great questions and then it was time to get to work. We cleaned the restaurant, put away all of the patio furniture, got the trash and recycling out, and left smiles on the faces of the café staff.
The benefits of this shared program between Tall Tales Ranch and The Arc of Arapahoe & Douglas Counties are proving to be a Two-Way Street. Our gang is learning about the non-profits in our community, and the non-profits are getting a helping hand and a solid dose of the magic to be found in difference. We have events each month and some great destinations ahead!
