Simple Meal

Simple Meal - Friday Lunch

In solidarity with people around the world who have no choice but to eat very simply and very little, our Friday lunch will be a “simple meal” of rice, beans and salad. The price of your lunch beyond the expense of preparing the meal will be donated to the Center for Development in Central America (CDCA), a project of the Jubilee House Community (JHC), a non-profit organization located in Nicaragua.

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The Jubilee House Community works with the poor. The CDCA’s goal is to work in partnership with communities and cooperatives to facilitate empowerment. They enable the communities and cooperatives to find their own solutions to the problems they identify and connects them with resources to solve their problems. The CDCA’s mission is to enable communities to become self-sufficient, sustainable, democratic entities.
