At Common Grounds café, your coffee is more than a perfectly blended, deliciously-brewed way to start your day. It’s a life-changing opportunity for the person behind the counter.
The Common Grounds Training Program is a free, 12-week food service training to employment program for the economically disadvantaged in our community. Manna partners with a wide-range of nonprofits to enroll individuals who are most in need in our community and have made the commitment to invest in themselves and their future. Each individual receives tools, training and support to move beyond hunger, homelessness or other barriers to a successful food service career.
Every purchase you make is invested back in these individuals serving you, creating real opportunities for sustainable change – right in your own backyard.
We’re not only pledged to this mission – we’re dedicated to offering you distinctive coffee, yummy food and phenomenal service. Our café offers a comfortable lobby with free Wi-Fi. Groups or business meetings are welcome. Please stop in and find out for yourself! The Common Grounds Café is open Monday 8-1pm, Tuesday- Friday, 8-2:30pm and Saturday 10-3pm!
