SAME Cafe | Serving Good Food for the Greater Good

SAME Cafe: as Howie Mandell says, it’s the “WOW” factor by John Respondek

My life has been quite the roller coaster, some wonderful highs and
yet in the last 10 years, some demoralizing lows. I’m a “recovering”
alcoholic, now with 1 year 2 months sober, and am “living” with H.I.V.
I heard about “SAME” 2 years ago thru the Hope Program, a day shelter
for homeless H.I.V.+ people.

I fell in love with “SAME”, day one. How can you not? The positive
loving energy (Brad + Libby, us volunteers, and “our” patrons from all
walks of life) The great “high end”, mostly organic fare. The chance
to be part of grass roots sharing.

SAME for me is, lets cut thru the chase, the food is no. 1, and it’s
“good”. I’m able to pay by my physical contribution (I have no cash
flow.) Accountability, be there twice a week to volunteer.

I will keep coming back for that feeling of being part of something
greater than myself. Same “way” helps to keep me sober and healthy.
I treasure my humble roll there, volunteering, eating and hanging out.
Brad + Libby make me feel “part” of SAME, so I use the word “we” a
lot, when I speak of SAME Cafe. WOW!
