December 8, 2020 is Colorado Gives Day — an annual statewide movement to increase online giving and celebrate community philanthropy. This year, more than ever, CAFE 180 needs your support.
CAFE 180 opened its doors in 201o with the mission of feeding everyone. Those who can pay, pay what they can. Those who can’t pay give of their time in exchange for lunch by working for an hour at the cafe. Since 2010, we have served more than 100,000 meals.
CAFE 180 provides fresh meals with made-from-scratch ingredients from a largely volunteer-run kitchen. Despite restrictions on indoor dining due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided more than 10,000 free meals to those in need this year. In addition, we are piloting a Meal Kit Program, which provides quality meals for families to make at home. The program is currently serving 20 families per week and continues to grow.
CAFE 180 believes in the power of community — that everyone has something to give and to receive, and together, we can build creative solutions to meet our shared needs.
When you support CAFE 180 on Colorado Gives Day, you help give a hand up –not a hand out — to those in need in the Englewood community. As an added incentive this year, the Community First Foundation will match gifts made on December 8, doubling the impact of your donation. Schedule your donation in advance to ensure you don’t miss this incredible opportunity to pay it forward for our neighbors in need.
