Put down your fork and spoon and head down to Fork and Spoon Homestyle Kitchen located on 7th Avenue. Bozeman has some truly delightful spots to grab a delicious meal, but none of the them offer as much as the Fork and Spoon Kitchen. Open Sunday through Friday from 5 to 7pm, the Kitchen always offers a full course menu, with beverages, soup, salad, several entree options, and of course, dessert. With a rotating menu, the options vary from week to week and seem to get more mouth-watering each time. The even cooler part, everything down to the last serving is made from scratch. You know what’s even cooler than that? Fork and Spoon tries to source as much of their ingredients as possible from local, Gallatin Valley sources. If you’re already thinking, “Wow, this place sounds amazing”, you haven’t even heard the best part.
Fork and Spoon is an incredibly community-conscious organization. In fact, the Kitchen used to be called the Community Cafe. The Kitchen follows a pay-what-you-can model, or a social enterprise design, that allows customers from any walk of life to enjoy a home-cooked, nutritious, and incredibly tasty meal. The menu has recommended prices listed next to the courses, often around $7 for the full course, but customers ultimately determine their own bill total. People that are can offer are encouraged to do so because those donations cover the difference for folks that may not be able to pay the recommended amount. To top it all off, Fork and Spoon Kitchen offers more than just dinners six nights a week. The community space and the Kitchen can be rented out and the volunteer kitchen staff can be hired on to cater for another organization. Occasionally, the Kitchen also offers cooking classes for a great price. All of the proceeds from the catering and classes goes straight back to Fork and Spoon to fuel the pay-what-you-can model.
Fork and Spoon Homestyle Kitchen offers such a unique way to enjoy a delectable meal while simultaneously giving back to your community. So the next time you head out the door for a bite to eat, consider stopping at the Fork and Spoon.
