Grantee Gives Everyone a Seat at the Table
Greg Foote, 40, was homeless and hungry when he heard about the Table Grace Ministries café in Omaha, Neb. The café was known for its philosophy of “pay what you can” and Foote only had some change in his pocket. Walking into the café, the former culinary student found kindness, conversation, and grace – as well as an opportunity to serve.
Christian music minister Simone Weber and her husband, Chef Matt Weber, started Table Grace Ministries in 2008 as a way to feed people and share their music. With Matt as the chef, they began providing in-home meal service to single parent families, which, Simone noted, was a worthwhile endeavor but couldn’t reach far enough into the community to be sustainable. On a leap of faith, they opened a café in 2011, with the mission to feed, equip, and uplift anyone who walked through the door.
