PANEL: The spiritual story of F.A.R.M. (Feed All Regardless of Means) Cafe’
F.A.R.M. Cafe is a local eatery where food and community are offered to all who walk through the door. It is part of a growing movement, One World Everybody Eats, that emphasizes the dignity of all and focuses on how we can share our lives through food, work, and life stories. As an organic concept, F.A.R.M. has blossomed into a reality that “radically” brings folks from all walks of life together. It is a place where spiritual practice is expressed in the living community of feeding people. It is a place to practice “being human.”
