Split the Plate is one of UUCW’s programs of outreach and generosity. Each month we give half of all undesignated offering monies to a non-profit organization as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community.
Tricklebee Café is a pay-what-you-can community café that offers healthy meals, foodservice training, and spiritual nourishment, and is located at 4424 W. North Ave. in the historic Uptown Crossing District of the Sherman Park neighborhood. Access to healthy food helps people to better care for themselves and their neighbors, which heals and strengthens the community.
By providing fresh, healthy, locally grown food to anyone regardless of the ability to pay, the cafe addresses food insecurity by feeding the immediate need of hunger, while also providing resources to educate and inspire people to make a habit of healthy eating. Tricklebee Café is a safe, inviting place for neighbors to gather to promote reconciliation and peace in a neighborhood that has experienced violence and neglect. The cafe works to eliminate prejudice and discrimination against the economically and socially marginalized by creating a space where individuals from all backgrounds may gather around the concept of a community table.
