Support SAME Cafe – So All May Eat

Organic Greens Salad

SAME Cafe located on East Colfax Ave is no ordinary cafe.  The cafe has an altruistic mission that has been integrated right into their name SAME, an acronym that stands for “SAll May Eat.”  Rooted in real philanthropySAME Cafe is the first nonprofit restaurant in Denver. SAME Cafe was opened by Brad and Libby Birky in 2006 in  a small store front on the not yet gentrified East Colfax.  Like it’s neighbors, SAME Cafe saw their business grow, just like the neighborhood around them that saw Tattered Cover, the Denver Film Society and Pinche Tacos grace the streets of the East Colfax neighborhood. The first year SAME Cafe opened they fed close to 7,000 people, all paid for on either financial donations or by the patrons working in the restaurant.  In 2011, they fed close to 20,000.  Brad and Libby have also helped other “pay what you can” restaurants around the country.

The cafe seeds local, organic meals made with health in mind.  Not wanting to exclude anyone from eating such wholesome, nutritious food, SAME allows people to pay as much as they can afford.  Furthermore, anyone may volunteer in the kitchen a little every week and get meals in return.
By supporting SAME Cafe, the Denver community may use their own hard-earned dollars to help feed others with healthy food.  This New Year, help ensure that all may eat, by buying one local, organic meal at a time from SAME Cafe.
SAME Cafe is located at 2023 East Colfax Ave Denver, CO  80236.  Tel:  720-530-6853.
