Harmony Café History

 

Since April 2016, Harmony Cafe has hosted meal events, primarily at the VFW hall on Edwards Street in Patchogue, NY. We use a Pay-What-You-Can pricing donation model, which can be exchanged for volunteer hours. This encourages more community involvement and allows us to encourage people to join us from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Our meal events are two and a half hours long with excellent live music. 

 

Our meal services are socially engaging events meant to bring the community together, regardless of social status. We believe all people deserve access to healthy, plant-based whole foods in an environment free of judgment and stigma.

Managing the Covid Crisis

 

When the global pandemic started affecting our community, we redirected our mission to assist those in need. This included hosting food drives, grab-n-go sites, and free food delivery services.

 

We collaborated with other agencies, such as The NY State contact tracing program, and provided food to their clients already afflicted with Covid-19. Thanks to the heartfelt help of our community and other nonprofit organizations, we were able to introduce a BOGO donation model for our new plant-based soup program.

 

Buy one, Give one soup is a winter program that started in November 2020 and ended in March 2021. This experience taught us that our mission was valid and the possibility of change is more than achievable when we come together united around a single effort.

 

From all of us at Harmony Cafe, thank you to all our volunteers, donors, and partners!
