Celebrate with us and join us for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 28, at First Moravian Church, 41 N. Duke St., York, where we'll be serving up delicious, locally sourced eats. Check out our menu!

-- Farmers harvest chicken soup
-- Lentil soup with coconut
-- Spring carrot, radish and quinoa salad with herbed avocado
-- Wheatberry salad with snow peas and carrots
-- Mediterranean hummus served with flatbread
-- Swiss chard and chickpea fritters with yogurt
-- Mushroom and garlic bread pudding with balsamic rhubarb drizzle
-- Rhubarb clafoutis
-- Signature dried fruit and oatmeal cookies

Of course, our menu is always based on what's available from our farmer friends, so check back for updates.

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.
Housekeeping items worth noting:

-- PARKING: When coming to the cafe for our Wednesday lunches, please DO NOT park in the private lots surrounding First Moravian Church.  You may park on the street (metered), or you may park at First Presbyterian Church at E. Market and N. Queen streets in the un-numbered, yellow-lined parking spots, and
please include a sign on your dashboard to indicate you are a Healthy World Cafe volunteer. Then, walk one block west down Clarke Avenue to First Moravian (and enter on north side)!

-- TAKE OUT: Take out orders for lunch are available by e-mailing your selections (by 10 a.m. May 28) to healthyworldcafe(at)gmail(dot)com.

-- VOLUNTEERING: In order to better respect our volunteers' time, we split 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.
And, since this month's lunch falls the week of Memorial Day, we'll forgo our Monday-night prep to allow everyone to enjoy their three-day weekend!

Here's a breakdown of our volunteer needs for this month's lunch:

-- 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 27 -- Food prep at First Moravian Church. If you're able, join us earlier and help us get a jump start on prep! We'll have volunteers prepping from 3 to 9 p.m.
 -- 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 -- Food prep and serving at FMC. We're now splitting our lunch days into two volunteer shifts to better respect our volunteers' time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and noon to 3 p.m. Feel free to sign up for both, if you wish. If you can't work a full shift (say, you can be there 10 to 2, but not as early as 9), please email sarah.e.chain(at)gmail(dot)com and let us know when to expect you!
