Full Heart Thursday - Colorado Local: SAME Cafe

I came across a great local restaurant I had no idea existed here in Colorado. I was watching a video online (I think it was on Upworthy) and it came across as a commercial.

It was for a restaurant called SAME Café. Let me tell you their motto:

SAME Café’s mission of serving good food for the greater good says it all. Committed to presenting culinary delights to all who walk through the door, it is all about food and community, and not so much about price.

SAME is the 1st nonprofit restaurant in Denver. Its patrons set the price for their mostly local, organic cuisine. If you can give more, please do. If you have a little less, pay what you can. If your pockets are empty, exchange an hour of volunteer work at SAME for one of the café’s mouth-watering meals.

Seriously? How amazing are they?

People come in, they eat, they work and they leave knowing that someone out there cares enough about them to purchase 90% of ingredients from local, organic farmers. SAME supports the local economy and local food just tastes better! Come in and check the map of CO to locate where our food comes from. Some favorite farms include The Growhaus, Granata Farms, Grant Family Farms, Harvest Mountain Farms, Haystack Mountain, GCK Farms, Monroe Farms, Ela Farms, Ranch Direct Foods, and so many more!

If you are looking for a way to get involved with an organization in the local Denver area, look no further.

Sounds awesome! I know we have a place in the works in my area but it's having trouble getting rolling. I love hearing about such big-hearted business.

I love places like this. Thank you for highlighting. It will be interesting to see how people respond to this business with the GMO labeling initiative currently gathering signatures in our state.
