One Acre Café to serve 9th Annual Community Meal for Christmas

Published 11:24 am Friday, December 10, 2021

The holidays are a time for love, fellowship, and good food. One Acre Café, a local nonprofit restaurant, knows firsthand how much these things are needed in so many people’s lives. This is why the café opened in Johnson City in 2013. “We want to make sure everyone has access to nourishment whether that means good healthy food or a sense of belonging in our community,” says Michelle Watts, executive director. At One Acre Café, if you are able to donate, there are suggested amounts for your meal. If you aren’t able to make a donation of money, you can donate your time to help out in the café in exchange for your meal. When you volunteer, you are helping this community café continue providing nourishing meals to others in the community.

As a thank you to the community for their continued support, One Acre Café will be serving the 9th Annual Christmas Community Meal on Thursday, Dec. 23. The traditional holiday meal will be served from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. and will be TAKE OUT only. This is free to any community member who is present at the café to receive the meal.

The menu will consist of brown sugar mustard glazed spiral sliced ham, cheesy au gratin potatoes, honey cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes, green beans with mushrooms, local collard greens, dinner rolls made fresh by Feed His Flock and an assortment of pies for dessert.
