Cook said at first she considered a food truck, but decided weather would be a problem to her mission. Then Church of Our Saviour donated the space, an offer hard to refuse. Road races and fund-raisers have provided the start-up cash. She said her philosophy is to offer a dignified and pleasant dining experience in an uplifting environment, without judgment, whether or not the diners can pay. By encouraging those able to support themselves to assist in the support of others, All Are Welcome seeks to reduce what she calls “food insecurity.”
