Join Healthy World Cafe for lunch Wednesday, June 25


We had a great Sunday afternoon this month at the Kiwanis Lake Be-In, selling out of nearly every item! Check out an article on the event from the York Daily Record.

If you missed our offerings earlier in June, you have another chance to enjoy our locally sourced eats: Healthy World Cafe will be open for lunch Wednesday, June 25!

Join us from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 25 at First Moravian Church, 41 N. Duke St., York, where we'll be serving up delicious options straight from our local farmers. 
Check out our menu!

Lemon Chicken Soup -- A creamy chicken soup with seasonal snow peas and just a hint of lemon

Pea Soup -- A smooth and refreshing puree with tarragon and fresh summer peas

Farmer's Harvest Frittata -- Celebrating York County's June harvest and bursting with the flavors of creamy garlic boursin

Radish and Fava Bean Salad -- Mouth watering Fava Beans and peppery radishes tossed with olive oil and seasonal herbs, topped with a parsley and tahini sauce. Served over fresh garden greens.

Russian Salad -- A vegan version of this classic pink salad. Beets, new potatoes, carrots and peas spiced with a creamy lemon, pickle and horseradish dressing. Served over fresh garden greens.

Chapati -- Served around the world, chapati is most commonly known as Indian flatbread. With its round shape, chewy texture and nutty flavor, it is a staple in South Asia, the Middle East, South Africa and China. Our volunteers are excited to share this nutritious, unleavened whole wheat bread with you.

Pea Hummus -- Smooth hummus from peas, tahini, garlic and lemon juice

Beet Hummus -- Chickpeas, almonds, beets and a little balsamic vinegar for a tart twist

Strawberry Soup -- Strawberries fresh from the orchard. We invite you to enjoy this delicate strawberry, yogurt and cardamom puree. 

Of course, our menu is always based on what's available from our farmer friends, so check back for updates. At Healthy World Cafe, we always feature our "eat what you want, pay how you can" philosophy. The ability to pay should never be a barrier to accessing delicious, unprocessed, healthy food.

Housekeeping items worth noting:

-- PARKING: When coming to the cafe for our Wednesday lunches, pleaseDO NOT park in the private lots surrounding First Moravian Church. You may park on the street (metered), or you may park at First Presbyterian Church at E. Market and N. Queen streets in the un-numbered, yellow-lined parking spots, and please include a sign on your dashboard to indicate you are a Healthy World Cafe volunteer. Then, walk one block west down Clarke Avenue to First Moravian (and enter on north side)!

-- TAKE OUT: Take out orders for lunch are available by e-mailing your selections (by 10 a.m. June 25) to healthyworldcafe(at)gmail(dot)com.

-- VOLUNTEERING: In order to better respect our volunteers' time, we split the Wednesday lunch into two volunteer shifts: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and noon to 3 p.m. Feel free, of course, to sign up for both shifts, if you wish.

Here's a breakdown of our volunteer needs for this month's lunch:

-- 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, June 23 -- Food prep at First Moravian Church (FMC), 39 N. Duke St., York.

We're now splitting our lunch days into two volunteer shifts to better respect our volunteers' time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and noon to 3 p.m. Feel free to sign up for both, if you wish. If you can't work a full shift (say, you can be there 10 to 2, but not as early as 9), please email sarah.e.chain(at)gmail(dot)com and let us know when to expect you!
