Since April of 2016, Harmony Cafe has hosted meal events, primarily at the VFW hall on Edwards Street in Patchogue. We use a Pay-What-You-Can pricing donation model, which can be exchanged for volunteer hours. We encourage people to join us from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Our meal events are two and a half hours in length with live music. Our meal events are socially engaging events meant to bring the community together, regardless of social status. We believe all people deserve to have access to healthy food in an environment that is free of judgment and stigma. All guests receive a meal, regardless of means.
Covid19 Crisis 2020-2021
We redirected our mission to assist the community in need at the start of the COVID19 Pandemic. We hosted food drives, grab n go site and free food delivery service. We collaborated with other agencies, such as The NY State contact tracing and provided food to their clients with covid-19. Thanks with the help of our community and other nonprofit organizations** We introduced a BOGO donation model for our new plant based soup program. Buy one, Give one soup, it is a winter program that started in November of 2020 and ended in March of 2021.
New for 2021
Harmony Cafe's joined Patchogue community garden. We plan to grow our own produce to be used for our plant based program. Wellness and education programs are being planned for June of 2021. Please watch for our online fundraising-we have big plans coming!
