FoCo Cafe: Oliver White

Oliver White was introduced to FoCo Cafe by a friend of his and from day one he started volunteering to help repay the cost of his meals. This 'volunteer to eat' program put in place by FoCo Cafe helps people like Oliver who are living on food stamps and need to make the most of it. To him, the most surprising feature of the Cafe was their "totally different system" based in numerous eco-friendly practices such as composting and reusing materials. This came as a sharp contrast to the other volunteer organizations and churches Oliver had donated his time to. By far the most important part of FoCo Cafe to Oliver is the environment, "everyone feels appreciated" and "never judged". (Davis Bonner | Collegian)
