cgoneworldOne World Now Non-Profit

Denise Cerreta’s One World Cafe has recently been designated by the IRS as 501(c)3, tax-exempt non-profit. Denise feels that the non-profit model will better serve her mission with the cafe: “Everbody Eats.” At One World, there is no menu; instead, customers ask for specific amounts of what they want and pay what they feel is right. One World even offers work-for-trade options.

Also, since returning from her trip to India, Denise has set up a complimentary dal and rice station, to “enable people who find themselves low on money and volunteer time a way to eat at our
Community Kitchen.” Or for people who really like rice and dal!
