Future Unclear for Cafe that Serves Those in Need
The future is unclear for a church-run cafe in Kenai that provides low-priced meals for families and individuals in need.
KENAI- The future is unclear for a church-run cafe in Kenai that provides low-priced meals for families and individuals in need.
The landlord plans to sell the building that houses The Way Cafe. It will be up to the new owner whether the establishment is allowed to continue serving meals there.
The cafe's volunteer organizer, Yvonne Meek, says it's the best location organizers have found because people can walk to the cafe. She hopes the new owner will consider that.
The cafe saw a drop in patrons after a nearby transitional living center for families with children closed in June. Meek says that's because people thought the cafe had closed, too. But since then, she says the number of people the cafe feeds has been growing.
