A new place to enjoy farm fresh and locally grown food is opening in South Charleston.
It’s called Café Appalachia, and it’s located inside an old church.
The non-profit is part of One World Everybody Eats.
The cafe and coffee house will have a different menu every day.
“The concept is to show people that someone who doesn’t have a lot of money can get a really good meal, but the other thing is food waste, so everything that is left turns into another meal the next day,” said Cheryl Laws with Café Appalachia.
All items are a suggested donation price, which means someone can bus tables, take out the trash or work in the garden to pay for their meal.
“You don’t know if you paid 20 dollars for yours [meal] and someone beside you is going to bus tables after they eat,” Laws said. “It’s an opportunity of people of all walks of life to come together and have conversations that will hopefully start healing the community…”
