Hi there, my name is Deanna Torino!
My main intention has always been to serve others for the greater good of society. If we can positively affect our neighbors and small communities, we can only assume a butterfly effect would spread this same positivity around the world. Therefore, taking action locally, no matter how big or small it may seem, is the key to kickstarting change. At Harmony Cafe, we are doing just that - bringing members of our community together with food, love and good company!
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Dietetics, I have an in-depth understanding about the state of food insecurity and its relationship with nutrition and health concerns. Keeping wholesome food options available in our communities is an important method to decreasing the risk of diabetes, obesity and malnutrition. But it’s not just about making it available, it’s also about creating an environment that is welcoming enough for people to come! That’s why, without question or judgement, every person that comes to us is fed. Everyone sits at a table, receives a meal, talks, laughs, enjoys live music and exists equally. For all of these incredible reasons, I am a proud member of the Board of Directors for this organization! I cannot wait to watch Harmony Cafe’s growth as we broaden our outreach in the community, and share our services with those who need it. We have so much to offer and so much more coming!
