Community Meal

Every Wednesday Evening From 5:00-7:00

All Are Welcome!!

Our Values

All neighbors are welcome to sit at our table.
A seat is waiting if you are hungry, or if you have a hunger to help our neighbors and make a difference in this community. We hope a good meal in a warm and welcoming environment will help to feed one’s soul. Come on in!

Good is in the hands that serve.
We cannot function without volunteers who give of their time and talent—the heart behind our mission. While we pray for volunteers to help bring good into the community by being the hands and feet of Jesus, all are welcome regardless of faith.

Togetherness will satisfy your appetite.
Our neighbors come together. Neighbors from across the street or across town. Those in need of help and those with help to give. All come together to enjoy a good meal and the pleasure of good company.

All may eat with love on the menu.
A meal is affordable for all at $6-$9. Pay what you can afford. Pay the full amount of the suggested price, or a little more to “pay it forward” and help to feed your neighbor. If unable to pay, give your time in service as payment.

Community is the chef’s special of the day.
Say hello. Introduce yourself to those around you. Take time to get to know your neighbors and take part in the One Bistro commitment to eliminate hunger, grow relationships, and celebrate community.

Top it off with a “to go” of happiness.
With a core ingredient of love and a dash of friendship, our hope is that you’ll end the meal with a “to go” of happiness that follows you all the way home.

"Had the margherita pizza and it was very good. The thing I love about this place is that they give back to the community. All the workers are volunteers and the bistro gives food away to people that can't afford it. Great business to support!"
