November is a month for gratitude. It is the time of year people gather around the table and give thanksIt is also a time to attend those who may not have a place at any table. In Chatham, Durham, Granville, Orange, Person, and Vance counties, more than 106,000 people live in food-insecure households, meaning they don’t have consistent access to nutritious food. Many go hungry from missing meals and do not even know where their next meal will come from. 


Next Tuesday, November 14th is RSVVP Day. RSVVP stands for Restaurants Sharing 10 Percent, where the Roman numeral Vs together add up to 10. This is the 29th year of the program and we are proud to have been supporters for last 21 of those years. Community is the driving force behind Joe Van Gogh and without the people of our community, we would not exist. That is why we are committed to serving our neighbors in need.  


Visit our cafes or any of the participating restaurants (from breakfast to dinner and coffees, in between) and 10 percent of all profits will be donated to the Inter-Faith Council for hunger-relief programs: the Food Pantry and Community KitchenJoin us and help make a difference to the individuals and families in our community. By eating out, you are giving others an opportunity to eat and a shared a meal has a way of nourishing more than the body; it has a way of stirring up gratitude, as well
