CAFE Huntington provides small (micro) grants to artists and activists in the Huntington, WV area. One day each month we invite people to a great location for a meal. Guest chefs cook some fantastic meals and it only costs $10 per person to join us. All of the income from that meal is given as a grant to support a local project.
During the meal representatives from the different group seeking the grants present their projects and then, when dinner is done, everyone who bought dinner gets to vote on their favorite project. The project that receives the most votes gets all of that meals money. So if 20 people show up to vote then the winning project will receive $200!
It’s a pretty great idea but we can’t take credit for it – the inspiration is the Sunday Soup project produced by InCubate Chicago
Seating for each meal is on a limited basis so we encourage you to check back here monthly or, even better, to subscribe to our mailing list so you know when and where our next meal will be. Seating availability will probably change monthly unless we find a permanent home for the event.
