One Acre Cafe will be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday 11/27 and Friday 11/28 so that our staff and volunteers may spend the holiday with their families. If you are in need of a meal or know of someone who is, the Haven of Mercy will be serving meals from 12 pm until 5 pm on Thanksgiving Day, Salvation Army will serve lunch at 11:30 on Friday. Wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving!
One Acre Café is located at 603 West Walnut Street in downtown Johnson City, TN. The café was established to further address the escalating issues of hunger and food insecurity in our community. The café utilizes the model provided by the One World Everybody Eats Foundation joining the growing family of more than thirty other community cafes across the country. The most recent to open in our area is the F.A.R.M. Café in Boone, NC. This progressive model is new to the Johnson City area and will be a great addition to the plans for downtown revitalization.
One Acre Café offers our community healthy and nutritious food in a warm and inviting space. There are suggested donations for those who can pay or pay it forward and the ability to volunteer in exchange for a meal for those who cannot. Our café offers a passionate, skilled chef who will work with local farmers to produce amazing cuisine.
You are the staff! Our volunteers are integral to running the day to day operations of One Acre Café. Whether you are volunteering for your meal or simply giving your time, it is the “coming together” of community that creates the heart of the café.
