“Everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food while being treated with dignity.” This is the philosophy of So All May Eat, a cafe in Denver, Colorado.

In this quaint little restaurant located in the heart of the Mile-High city, a menu of fresh organic cuisine is prepared daily. However, the menu doesn't list prices and the there isn't a cash register on the counter. There is only a donation box at the front of the store.

The restaurant serves roughly 15,000 people a year, reports the Westword News of Denver, some pay more for their meal and some pay less. There are no suggested prices, allowing everyone to enjoy a quality meal at a price they can afford.

So far, the cafe’s donation system seems to balance itself out, as the restaurant has been in business for almost two years now.

Curated news and insights about innovative, market-driven solutions to poverty explored through news, commentary and discussion.
