SAME Cafe | Serving Good Food for the Greater Good

Newsletter #147

One of our long time volunteers celebrated her 72nd birthday with friends at the cafe on Tuesday night. Carol’s birthday was just one of the many events we’ve been hosting lately, and it was tons of fun! We served 2 kinds of lasagna, fresh baked sweet italian bread rolls, garden veggie salad, and even had a delicious cake from our fabulous neighbors over at Mulberries Cake Shop.

Wednesday afternoon we had a Board of Directors meeting where we discussed the progress and events of the last few months. No big changes are coming, we just mention it because we want to say how much we appreciate the hours of service that are donated by our wonderful directors.

We celebrated the 40th occurrence of Earth Day by sharing samples of our pizza and cookies at the Redirect Guide’s 2010 launch party which took place at Green Spaces in downtown Denver. By our unofficial count there were well over 200 attendees, many of whom had not yet heard of SAME or had the chance to taste our food. Hopefully we made a few friends who will return to the cafe in the days and weeks to come.

Last month we were alerted to a neat project being taken on by a central Illinois resident (who happens to have grown up just minutes from our childhood homes) named Shay Kelley. Called Project 50/50, the basic premise is to travel to all 50 states in 50 weeks, distributing 200 canned food items per week along the way. You can read more about Shay’s progress at her website http://www.shaykelley.com . We were visited by Shay on Saturday at the cafe. She didn’t have a lot of time because her journey across the United States is so packed, but enjoy hearing little bits of how this journey has unfolded and were able to snap a picture or two. There’s one of Shay and Libby here.
