Healthy World Cafe will be open for lunch Wednesday, Aug. 28!

Take a break from your day and head down to Healthy World Cafe for lunch Wednesday, Aug. 28. We'll be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. serving up healthy, locally sourced eats at First Moravian Church, 39 N. Duke St., York.

Tomato Basil Quiche
We're celebrating summer with our menu this month:
  • Summer Gazpacho 
  • Melon & Celery Salad with Mint Vinaigrette
  • Cold Green Bean Salad
  • Eggplant, Summer Squash/Zucchini, and Corn Pasta
  • Tomato Basil Quiche
  • Chicken & Roasted Pepper Sandwich
  • Marinated Peach & Nectarine with Whipped Cream

At Healthy World Cafe, we always feature our "eat what you want, pay how you can" philosophy.  The ability to pay should never be a barrier to accessing delicious, unprocessed, healthy food.  Take out orders are available by e-mailing your selections (by 10 a.m. Aug. 28) to healthyworldcafe(at)gmail(dot)com.

When coming to the Cafe, please DO NOT park in the private lots surrounding 1st Moravian Church.  You may park on the street (metered), or you may park at 1st Presbyterian Church at W. Market and N. Queen Sts., and walk one block west down Clarke Ave. to 1st Moravian (enter on north side).

Interested in volunteering for food prep or serving? Sign up through VolunteerSpot for our July lunch or other upcoming events.

And don't forget our switch to volunteer shifts for Wednesday's lunches: In order to better respect our volunteers' time, we'll be splitting the Wednesday lunch into two volunteer shifts: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and noon to 3 p.m. Feel free, of course, to sign up for both shifts, if you wish.

If you can't volunteer for an exact shift, hey, we understand that, too! We love that you're still eager to help out when you can. We would just ask that, after signing up through VolunteerSpot, that you'd send a quick email to sarah.e.chain(at)gmail(dot)com and let us know when to expect you. That makes it easier for us to plan out volunteer duties.

Check out a calendar of other upcoming events as well.

Bringing things together...changes and updates to upcoming events

Sometimes things come together in great ways!

As many of you know, HWC has partnered with Horn Farm and Buy Fresh, Buy Local to hold an innovative farm to table dinner (Farm-To-City) on Beaver Street on October 6, 2013. Rather than put a strain on all of our hardworking volunteers, farmers and donors, we are combining our Market-to-Table fundraiser with the new Farm-To-City event to dedicate all of our resources to this fabulous fall feast. With these great partners, this event promises to be one that the City of York will be remembering for years to come.

For those of you who have already bought tickets to the original event, don't worry: your tickets are transferable (or refundable if you are unable to join us on October 6).

If you are interested in volunteering for event planning, silent auction planning, or working in the kitchen during the event, or if you have any questions, please contact us at:
