It’s a pop-up café, it’s in Concordia, and it’s got kid-friendly activities scheduled throughout the month.
Comunid Cafe at Leaven is open every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Leaven Community/Salt and Light Lutheran Church on the corner of 20th Avenue and Killingsworth Street. Tea, coffee and pastries are available – all at suggested donation prices – and free wi-fi is available.
Kid-friendly activities planned for August include:
- Aug. 4: iced and blended coffee and story time
- Aug. 11: Italian sodas and bubble wands
- Aug. 18: smoothies and balloon improv art
Run entirely by volunteers, the café is a partnership between Trash for Peace, the Leaven Community, Home Forward, Create Plenty and community members. Its slogan is, “Where zero waste, meets community, meets coffee.”
Along with community classes, the café is intended to educate youth and communities on reducing, reusing and rethinking waste, while additionally providing valuable nutrition education, vocation and businesses skills.
