Healthy World Cafe featured in The Washington Post

We were thrilled to see Healthy World Cafe featured in the Travel section of The Washington Post in June. Melanie Kaplan, a freelance writer in the D.C. area, joined us for a volunteer shift earlier in the month, rolling out chapati dough and working in exchange for her meal.

She offers a beautiful look at One World Everybody Eats, F.A.R.M. Cafe, SAME Cafe and others that paved the way for a pay-how-you-can cafe in York, plus a fantastic glimpse at the spirit of Healthy World Cafe and our mission to build a sustainable community by providing nourishing food for all.

Check out the article online, and join us for lunch 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday!

(Also, psst... you, too, can volunteer. Sign up at!)
