Buy One Meal, Give One Meal to Someone Who’s Homeless or Low-Income

cafe-logoThe Crescent City Cafe is a grassroots project that serves restaurant-style breakfast meals, with dignity, to people who are homeless and low-income. It is funded entirely by donations and run by young-adult volunteers. The Cafe has served more than 3,900 meals since 2009! The One+One Brunch fundraiser simulates a regular Cafe event, and allows paying donors to see what we do and how we do it, and it serves as a major way that the Crescent City Cafe earns the funds to operate. A ticket is only $10 and covers your meal + one future meal for someone who is homeless or low-income.

Purchase tickets online at www.CrescentCityCafe.com.  Saturday, May 18 | Doors open 9-11 a.m. | Rayne Memorial UMC, 3900 St. Charles Ave.
