JOHNSON CITY — In advance of next week’s grand opening of Johnson City’s new nonprofit One ACRE Cafe, the West Walnut Street restaurant opened Thursday and Friday for couple of trial runs.

On Thanksgiving Day, the cafe where everyone will eat regardless of their ability to pay hosted a traditional holiday dinner for the men of The Manna House transitional shelter for veterans and other men who are working to overcome issues that contribute to homelessness. It also hosted the women of The River, the First Presbyterian Church downtown resource center for women and children in need. 

And on Friday, the cafe invited in the many volunteers and contributors whose donations of labor, financial support and in-kind gifts have made its opening a reality for a free soft-opening lunch to put its all-volunteer staff to the test.
