Heart-n-Soul Community Café Mission: We are committed to addressing food insecurities, building community and providing delicious food to nurture body, heart, and soul.
Heart-n-Soul Community Café Mission
We are a nonprofit, social entrepreneurship that serves locally grown fresh food and operates under a pay-what-you-can model. We value a place where everyone is welcome and provide creative payment solutions for all.
Since our first café in June of 2016, we have continued to grow in cafes, volunteers, partners, and most importantly, community members served. We believe that everyone, regardless of economic status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food with dignity. We have no prices on our menu.
The “pay what you can” pricing model used by the café gives individuals and families who may be experiencing chronic, seasonal, or temporary food insecurity an opportunity to enjoy a local and nutritious meal with a price that is affordable to them.
Fargo to L.A.

When asked to write an article about my own daughter, Mia (West Fargo native, now Los Angeles singer/songwriter), to be honest I panicked a little.
How does one go about writing an article about their own child without sounding biased or boastful? Honestly, how do you do it? So, just like everything else in life, you begin and know that - just like everything else in life - somehow it will work out.
Believe it or not, there are more F/M graduates currently living in major U.S. cities trying to land a spot on the national music, dance or theater scene than you could imagine. These talented kids from all over the Red River Valley are digging in, doing the work and achieving what most people only dream about!
[A Passion for Photography}

Local photographer Jared Eischen realized his passion at a young age. It all started with his family and family videos. While some people shy away from the camera, Jared was drawn to it, whether it be on vacation, at school events or holidays. He fondly remembers his mom taking home movies of their family, and that is what he looks back on and smiles as he remembers how he found his love of photography. After realizing his love for the camera, his mom gave him a camera for his birthday one year, and he got his start with friends and family.
