Kathleen Baumgardner is the co-founder and executive director of FoCo Cafe, a volunteer-driven nonprofit cafe in Fort Collins, Colorado. The FoCo Cafe has served more than 49,000 fresh, organic and primarily locally sourced meals and thrived since its opening on Thanksgiving Day 2014. The cafe operates with a donation box – you can pay what you can, pay what you would normally pay, pay it forward so others might eat, or you can make your contribution with time and talent. This concept allows ALL people to access healthy meals with dignity and it brings people together to participate in community, filling a need as basic as that of food.
