One Bistro Joins Nonprofit Cafes Nationwide for National Everybody Eats Week

Media Release via Mary Kettenring Associate - One Bistro - 937-999-7805 - mlkettenring@gmail.com

Xenia, OH (August 5, 2019) - One Bistro will join nearly 50 nonprofit cafes across the country for National Everybody Eats Week from August 25th - August 31st, 2019. National Everybody Eats Week is a nationally coordinated campaign to help consumers understand the power they have in ending hunger in their own community. 

According to Feeding America, over 41 million people in the United States are food insecure; and the annual food budget shortfall totals just over $21 million. In comparison, according to the USDA, each year Americans spend over $500 billion eating at full-service restaurants. 

What if deciding where to eat for lunch also involved deciding how you can make a difference right here in Xenia?

"There is power in how you spend your money," says Julie Williams, President of One World Everybody Eats. "Empowered consumers can do so much more than a single organization." 

One Bistro is a nonprofit pay-what-you-can café, affiliated with the One World Everybody Eats community café network. Here, diners determine what to pay based on what they can afford. And those who can, are asked to pay-it-forward to help our neighbors in need.

"One Bistro is proud to be a member of the community café movement around the country. Bringing National Everybody Eats Week to Xenia and Greene County is exciting for us as we raise awareness about food insecurity and do our part to end hunger in our community. One Bistro's café operational model is being looked at and replicated by many communities across the country. We have a sustainable model and we are extremely grateful for the Xenia and surrounding community that embraces and supports us," says One Bistro Board President, Denise Davis. 

During National Everybody Eats Week, One Bistro will be open extra hours for dinner service on Friday (August 30th) and Saturday (August 31st) from 5:00-9:00 pm. They will also be receiving official government proclamations from Governor Mike DeWine, Greene County Commissioners, and Xenia Mayor, Sarah Mays. 

One Bistro encourages all Xenia and surrounding residents to come for a meal during National Everybody Eats Week. Or, consider donating online at onebistro.org to help a neighbor in need.

One Bistro's regular business hours are Wednesday-Friday from 11:00 pm - 2:00 pm, Wednesday Evening Community Meal from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm and Saturday Brunch from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm.
