Social impact is on the menu.

Not just a superb restaurant but a social enterprise. Every dollar of revenue generated by the Hungry Heart Cafe is reinvested into our social justice work.

Eat well, do good.

Beyond our customers, we also feed people experiencing food insecurity. Many of the participants of Stella's Circle and other vulnerable community members live in poverty. Our Meals Squared program provides them with tasty well-balanced meals to lessen hunger. 
The Meals Squared program is entirely funded by the generosity of Hungry Heart Cafe customers. Adding $2 to your bill provides 1 meal to someone in need. At the Hungry Heart Cafe, you can eat well and do good.

The best social program is a job.

We provide job training and work experience for marginalized adults,  like the participants at Stella's Circle. The Hungry Heart is a safe learning environment for folks facing barriers to inclusion in their community. Barriers like mental health challenges, addictions, poverty, homelessness, trauma, criminal justice history, low literacy, and unemployment. Real work gives them the skills and confidence to gain economic independence and reach their fullest potential. We like to think of it as giving people a hand up, instead of a hand out.
