We’re excited to release our video about SAME Café in Denver, Colorado, which we visited at the end of our Southwest Tour. This unique restaurant serves delicious organic food on a pay-what-you-can model. And if you don’t have a few bucks in your pocket, you can always volunteer in exchange for a healthy meal. The restaurant covers 75% of its total costs with what people put in the anonymous payment box and the rest is covered by grants and individual donations.
The owners, Brad and Libby Birky are two of the most amazing people we’ve ever met. We left after our day of filming feeling truly inspired by their commitment to making healthy food accessible. They’re not just talking about organic food “being too expensive for average people”, they’re doing something about it! And in the process, they’ve created a community of customers and volunteers that you can tell feel part of something great.
If you’d like to donate or get more information, please visit the SAME Café website.
