About Ubuntu and Ubuntu Canteen

About Ubuntu:
 "Ubuntu" is an inspiring concept in many cultures of Southern Africa and emphasizes the spirit of sharing and honoring our connectedness.

About Ubuntu Canteen:
In honor of our mutual humanness, we'll provide a fun, colorful, healthful, veggie-and-grain rich, dinner to anyone who would like one :).

We'll have one extra dinner (to feed 2-5 people) on each MWF. Pick-up preferred; in-town delivery possible approx. 5- 5:30 p.m.

E-mail:​m (if you do not have e-mail, leave a brief message on 767-1611) to specify food restrictions and arrange.

(There is no fee.)

Leymah Gbowee: Ubuntu: "I am what I am because of who we all are." 

Archbishop Desmond Tutu: One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. 

We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.

Nelson Mandela: traveller through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him."
