The restaurant will provide quality and delicious meals produced from local sources, served in a restaurant where everybody eats, regardless of means. Images of the hearts will be available on their website, www.farmcafe.org .
 
How It Works
At F.A.R.M. Cafe, customers pay what they can. Those who can pay more than the daily suggested price will be encouraged to do so, so that others who cannot afford a meal can simply eat. Those who cannot pay may volunteer for an hour in exchange for a meal.
