Your enduring support of One Bistro has been vital to creating a place where our neighbors eat and come together as one community. Your donations, sponsorships, volunteering and pay-it-forward contributions have allowed us to nourish our community physically and spiritually. We are grateful for you and know you have people in your lives you are grateful for as well. One Token One Meal is a new addition to One Bistro. It is another way to ‘pay it forward’. When you purchase a token, you are helping your community café and when you give it away, you are blessing someone else with a meal. You can purchase different quantities of tokens which are beautifully made wooden tokens, packaged in old-time mason jars and tied up with simple yet present-worthy ribbons. Hand the tokens out one-at-a-time…or gift the entire jar! Each token turned in is worth one meal at One Bistro. It’s that simple!
The Story Behind The Tokens
One Bistro's board of directors is always on the lookout for new and creative ideas for building community and feeding our neighbors. It is fun to visit other community cafes across the United States to see what projects have been making an impact in their neighborhoods. Fork Real Community Cafe in South Dakota uses wooden tokens as a way for patrons to 'pay it forward' and pass along the blessing of a delicious meal.
“Guess what my friends and family will be getting as gifts for the next year? One Token for One Meal at One Bistro! So exciting. I am thrilled to be getting this kind of bang for my donation dollars. It’s a tangible way for me to support this place so near and dear to my heart. And by gifting my friends and associates with these meal tokens, I have the opportunity to share One Bistro with many new people. What a wONEderful idea!” ~ Barbara Mills, Friend of One Bistro
