Serving at the FARM Cafe in Boone, NC
by Thejackofhearts about 5 years ago

FARM stands for Feeding All Regardless of Means. The cafe is in downtown Boone, and it's a pay-whatever-you-can place that's open for lunch Mon-Sat. The cool thing is, you can volunteer in exchange for a healthy, delicious meal. Head down there around 10:30, 10:45, and they'll be preparing for lunch. Offer your services and they fix you up with an apron and nametag. I ended up washing dishes for about an hour (I was surprised when a second shift filled in!) and sat down afterwards for lunch with new friends.
