MARCH CAFES CANCELED

After much research and consulting with local and state entities on Covid-19 (Coronavirus), Heart-n-Soul Community Café has decided to cancel cafés on both March 15th at MYRT Armstrong Center and March 22nd at Square One Kitchens. Our guests and volunteers mean the world to us, and we feel this is in the best interest of everyone given our current information. Thank you for understanding!  We will keep everyone up to date with rescheduled and future cafés.

Although our March cafes are canceled, we at Heart-n-Soul Community Café would still like to help during this time of need in our society.  With that in mind, we wanted to share with you a couple of things that you can do and/or support for the immediate food-related needs in our community.  Cass Clay Food Partners has developed this crowd-sourced list of all emergency food resources available to those most vulnerable in our community.  If you know anyone who might be struggling with food insecurity/hunger, please share it:

  • To better support our associates and serve our customers, we will adjust our operating hours beginning Sunday, March 15. Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice. This will help ensure associates are able to stock the products our customers are looking for and to perform cleaning and sanitizing. Stores currently operating under more reduced hours (for example they regularly close at 10 p.m. or open at 7 a.m.) will keep their current hours of operation.

What we do

Heart-n-Soul helps neighbors share a meal in order to foster a tight knit Fargo-Moorhead community. All are welcome, no matter their economic status. This way, our neighbors who can’t always afford to visit a restaurant can come in and enjoy a nutritious meal, no questions asked. Those who pay it forward or pay the suggested amount keep our cafe going so that those who are hungry can feel comfortable and welcomed.

Come in for a meal and leave with nourished


We love our volunteers. You should be one.


We could never do everything we do to nourish our neighbor’s body, heart, and soul without our extraordinary volunteers. Last month alone, volunteers donated over 100 hours! But we can always use more help. How great would it feel to serve a meal to someone who may not eat anything else for the rest of the day? Or use your love of cooking to prepare that meal? There are many ways you can help as a Heart -n- Soul volunteer, from dishes, to serving, to cooking.

Groups, individuals, families, there are many opportunities. If you can’t volunteer your time, we hope you’ll join us for a meal sometime!
