Niswonger Scholar Alex Smyth has been busy volunteering with the “One World, Everybody Eats” movement in our community. As a sophomore at East Tennessee State University, Alex became involved in the One Acre Café that will be opening in downtown Johnson City in the fall of 2013. The Café offers a “pay what you can” model, with suggested donations for those who can pay, pay it forward, and volunteer in exchange for a meal options. The Café chef will focus on healthy meals with items purchased from, or donated by, local farmers. The mission of One Acre Café is: “To nourish the body, replenish the spirit, and grow the community so that all might be fed.”
