Thank you for all your support!

New City Cafe had an amazing first summer! The cafe is an integration of our New City Farm and New City Bakery programs. The outdoor neighborhood cafe sells soups, salads and wood-fired pizzas made by high school youth from our own farm produce during the summer months. The cafe also features baked goods from our middle school bakery program. Through the cafe, middle and high school students learn culinary, baking, restaurant , and customer service skills. 

This year saw the beginning of a new chapter for our longest running program. The middle school bakery was a part of New City Neighbors from the very beginning. Transitioning into the cafe was swimming out into deeper waters for us. Now, at the end of the summer, we can say New City Cafe was a success on multiple levels! We wouldn’t be talking this way if it wasn’t for your support, so thank you! Every week we had enthusiastic and generous customers, willing to give our young people the chance to practice their job skills. Hopefully you enjoyed the atmosphere, our service, and the food. We certainly enjoyed your company!
