SAME Cafe | Serving Good Food for the Greater Good

Community Profile Jan. 12 – Liz, Harold, Gaia

“Liz and Harold have become more than customers; they are great friends.
Liz first heard about SAME Cafe when she was working for Greenpeace. You
can say that Liz is a bit of a food activist. She loves taking care of the
planet and educating herself and others on best practices in
sustainability. She is even working on a masters degree in sustainability.
Her love for the earth matches well with our business model. Although
initially she worked during our business hours, she was curious and wanted
to come in and try it out. She was excited to hear that a community space
offering such healthy food was right in her neighborhood. Once she stopped
working for Greenpeace, she had time on her hands to come in and explore
and she has been here ever since. She would drag her partner Harold down
as often as she could to have a good healthy meal that the two students
could afford. Liz and Harold have spent many hours volunteering, visiting
and building community here. As we got to know Liz, we found out she was
expecting! It was awesome to watch Liz and Harold throughout her
pregnancy. Liz continued to volunteer even when she was 8 months
pregnant! Then in October of 2011, Gaia May was born! What a fabulous
addition to this fantastic family. But what was most beautiful to me was
how the SAME Cafe community celebrated this new addition. Liz and Harold
brought Gaia down to SAME when she was about 5 days old. Everyone gathered
around in such joy to meet this new bundle. Some customers exchanged hugs
with Liz and Harold and others brought Gaia gifts. Over the next several
days, folks asked about Liz and Harold and were excited to hear the news.
This is what community is all about. We are excited to watch Gaia and this
family grow!
