Our Vision

We envision a restaurant that allows a community to live in a spirit of collaboration and reciprocity; where people put the principle of “Love thy neighbor as thyself” into action; where material resources and human resources are not wasted.

30-40% of food produced for human consumption is wasted (US Department of Agriculture). This equates to 519,400 tons of food annually in Minnesota.
