“Destiny Community Café” offers everyone to Pay-What-You-Can!

Destiny Community Café is a nonprofit 501c3 and a member of

“One World Everybody Eats Foundation” (OWEE). 

Destiny is housed at Scott’s Grand Reception & Corporate Center

We will raise the level of awareness about food insecurity (hunger) in this country and reduce food waste, while also being a catalyst for change in our communities.

The cafe is open Monday-Friday 12 pm-2pm, where diners pay what they can afford. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work for an hour in exchange for your meal.

Destiny Community Café is the only OWEE Pay What You Can Cafe in South Carolina.  Its patrons set the price for their mostly local & organic as much as possible, soul food cuisine. If you can give more, please do. If you have a little less, pay what you can. If your pockets are empty, exchange an hour of volunteer work at Destiny for one of the café’s mouth-watering meals.

The Scott family catering team, members of the Soul Food Alliance & Volunteers from the community operate the kitchen for the Destiny Community Cafe.

It is the intent of Destiny Community Cafe to build a healthy community by providing a basic need of food in a respectful and dignified manner to anyone who walks through the door.

Destiny also implements “farm to table” concepts and outreach programs by utilizing local farmers such as Fields Farm.

For a significant number of Americans, putting food on the table every day is a struggle. 16 million kids – 1 in 5 – do not have enough to eat each day and lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), over 17 million U.S. households are considered food insecure.

Destiny has a warm & happy environment that is welcoming to existing and new diners, staff, and volunteers at all times.

Destiny’s Features:
•Pay-what-you-can pricing

•Eliminate food waste daily
•Community Table – We have larger tables where individuals and small groups can sit with others and make a larger group that can cross social, economic and other societal boundaries.
