We're on a mission to erase food insecurity.

We wouldn't exist without our mission. Acorn Community Cafe was opened by the team behind Lunch People, a small community effort to serve high quality free meals to school kids and their families (or anyone who asked) during the early pandemic. In early 2021 our founders quit their restaurant jobs to open Acorn Community Cafe, providing a physical space for our vision to grow. In 2022, our community group formalized into a 501c3 nonprofit organization, the 86 Hunger Foundation, which currently runs two programs from the cafe:

The Blue Plate Project for free hot meals, and the Free Market Project for free nonperishables. 

We're proud to work in solidarity with BIPOC, queer, and gender diverse community members and are committed to helping make Acorn Community Cafe a safe and welcoming place for everyone.
