Is your lunch bunch looking for a terrific place to meet? Try the South Side Roots Cafe & Market on Reeb, south of Parsons in Columbus, in an old restored elementary school. It's intended for low income who have limited resources, they pay what they can, and get delicious, chef inspired meals. It is part of the Mid-Ohio Food Bank and has a grocery store with locally grown foods. Eat well, do good.
From Columbus Business First, "The cafe will operate on a pay-what-you-can model serving lunch Monday through Friday, and brunch on Saturday. Customers with the resources can pay-it-foward and donate meals to a hungry neighbor. Additionally, the cafe will host a free community meal every Tuesday evening and provide snacks to Reeb’s on-site child-care center and the Boys & Girls Club." Hours are M-F 11-3, and Saturday brunch 9-2.
