NEST Café is serving a delicious Mardi Gras-inspired meal of jambalaya and corn bread in the Two Rivers Church parking lot on Tuesday, February 16 from 4:30-6;30 p.m.
The cost of the dinner is whatever you decide. There will be a suggested cost (usually between $8-$12), and you may pay that. If you’re having a good day, and can pay for more than just your meal, you are welcome to pay more. If times are tough, and you could use a less expensive meal that day, or even if you cannot spend a dime, you will get the same meal. The cost of the meal is offset by the generosity of others, the volunteered labor, donated ingredients, and other NEST Café fundraisers.
The mission of NEST Café (which stands for Nourishing Everyone Sustainably Together) is “to nourish bodies and community by providing delicious, sustainably sourced food to all who enter regardless of their means.” For more information you can go to NestCafeQC.org.
This is the second time NEST Cafe and Two Rivers will partner in ministry. On January 10 NEST Café served nearly 150 meals while using the Two Rivers Church kitchen and parking lot. Guests had to come out of their car, order at the table, and then could go back to their car where the to-go meals were brought to them.
The cost of the lunch was $7, but guests could choose to pay more or less based on their ability. Guests from our Saturday Meal Site were invited to come as well, and many were seen coming back for the chorizo quiche, vegetable hash, and brownie (pictured.
The event went so well that we have agreed to do it again. NEST Café is coming back to set up their pop-up restaurant for dinner on Tuesday, February 16 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. They plan on serving a Mardi Gras inspired meal of jambalaya and corn bread. To learn more about NEST Café, you can go to
