Introducing Healthy World Cafe at the Moravian Lunchroom!

Healthy World Cafe and the First Moravian Church are pleased to announce a new partnership, "HWC at the Moravian Lunchroom."  This partnership will allow Healthy World Cafe to open on a regular basis downtown and build upon the success of the Moravian Lunchroom outreach initiative.

Healthy World Cafe will open to greet customers on Wednesday, April 25, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., in the community hall of First Moravian Church, at 41 N. Duke St.  Fresh, local, delicious food will be available, keeping with the mission of the Healthy World Cafe: "to prepare healthy, local food for all," the cost is never to be a barrier for anyone. Patrons will pay what they are able, and be provided with the opportunity to volunteer at the café in exchange for a great meal.

Healthy World Cafe will also be open May 23, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the First Moravian Church location, and then will open more frequently in the summer months to take advantage of York County's abundant summer harvest.

Menu for 4/25: Greek Salad with Orzo and Black-Eyed Peas; Mixed Green Salad with Pecans, Goat Cheese, and Dried Cranberries; Spinach Quiche;  Spring Minestrone Soup with Chicken Meatballs; Leek, Potato, and Tarragon Soup; and Oatmeal Cookies with Mixed Dried Fruit.  All menu items are available in "to-go" containers. (And of course, menu items are always based on what's fresh, available, in-season locally, so ingredients may change.  Farmers dictate our menu!)

To access the Healthy World Cafe dining room, follow the walkway around the left side of First Moravian Church toward the rear of the building.  There you'll see the entrance and be welcomed by volunteers.  Signs will be posted to direct you.

If you are interested in joining volunteers from HWC and First Moravian Church in helping with food preparation, serving, or any other volunteer opportunity with HWC, call 814-8204 or e-mail us at healthyworldcafe(at)

You may also visit Healthy World Cafe at two upcoming events in #iloveyorkcity: Go Green in the City, April 21, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. along N. Beaver St. and at the Olde York Street Fair on May 13, 12:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. along E. Market St. (in front of First Presbyterian Church).  We'll have local, healthy, delicious food available for sale, all proceeds will further the mission of HWC to open a permanent location downtown.

The YorIT Social Venture Fund of York County Community Foundation is a key source of support for the Healthy World Cafe.
