ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - In Roanoke, a new cafe has opened. But this one has a twist; it’s a nonprofit donate-what-you-can style of food service.

Ursula’s Cafe held its grand opening Saturday, September 24. The restaurant and non-profit aims to be a welcoming spot to enjoy a nice meal or sweet treats.

The owners say they were inspired to open the cafe after seeing a need to feed people in the Star City.

“Our Mission is to feed everybody with dignity. Be able to provide space for community. When we’re not serving food, this is gonna function as a community art center. So, this is a space for everybody to hang out. Get something nutritious and delicious to eat. And to spend time in a place that is safe and welcoming.”

The cafe says its retail items and classes will keep it in business, saying everyone deserves good food and fulfilling lives.
