KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WIVB) — A Michigan cafe has started dishing out food differently. The Feed the World Cafe serves customers and helps those in need at the same time.
Chef Patrick Mixis opened the cafe in Kalamazoo with a mission in mind. For every dollar spent, six meals will be provided for families through the Food Bank of South Central Michigan.
In seven months, Feed the World Cafe has donated money to supply 24,000 meals.
“We are just starting to get busier and busier and seeing hard work pay off,” says Mixis. “Everybody should be able to eat. No one should go hungry, especially kids.”
Mixis says his plan is to open more franchises in other Michigan cities.
