When you think of non-profits, restaurants likely don't come to mind. However, just this year, a
non-profit café opened at 3828 Lancaster Avenue. It’s called EAT, and every meal served is
EAT stands for “everyone at the table,” which speaks to the café’s mission of helping end hunger
in West Philadelphia, where 1 in 4 residents are food insecure. In partnership with Drexel, the
Vetri Community Partnership (yes, that Marc Vetri), and the West Philadelphia community,
EAT offers three nutritious and fresh meals each day to anyone who walks through the door. At
the end of the meal, each person receives a check with a suggested price of $12. However, the
check also makes it clear that this price is merely a suggestion, and patrons can pay as much or
as little as they wish.
So, next time you’re around Drexel and feeling hungry, I’d encourage you to go check out EAT.
