Our Mission: Helping to end hunger and food insecurity issues following the “pay what you can” restaurant model. Using, wherever possible, locally produced and sustainable ingredients that are healthy and nutritious. A model that builds community, offers a hand up, and helps to end food waste.
Ne Si’ka is a full service restaurant in the quality food tradition that allows patrons to pay as they are able. Suggested prices will be posted and those with means can pay the suggested price, or more if they so choose. All proceeds will go into the non-profit and for fighting hunger. Those who are unable to pay will have opportunities to volunteer at the restaurant in whatever capacity they are willing or able. This may be in the kitchen, the community garden, or a variety of other options. No one is turned away for inability to pay. The goal is to create a completely non-biased and comfortable atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and has a seat at the table. While we help to alleviate hunger and food insecurity, the broader intention is to help create and foster a greater sense of community.
Everyone, regardless of means, has the right to dine with dignity and have access to a quality, nourishing, thoughtfully prepared meal.
There are many goals surrounding our project. Some big, some small, but they all add up to building a stronger healthier community that works for everyone. Offering a hand up to those who need it while offering amazing and gratifying opportunities to those with the ability to help. All surrounding quality food from the heart.
