Community members are invited to attend the launch party for Mosaic Tea and Coffee, a “pay-it-forward” venture that also will provide job training for adults and disabilities, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. The café will be open in the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. in downtown Davis.
Mosaic is a project that has been developed by a group of individuals from Davis Community Church and the community. Organizers also hope to turn the Fellowship Hall into a venue for live music, art and theater.
With its “pay-it-forward” model, Mosaic plans to be the first spot in Davis to create a “gift economy” by allowing patrons to pay what they can and, if they are able, pay a little more to be passed on to the next person, creating an atmosphere of community and kindness.
The event will feature live music by acoustic rock band Wealth of Nations along with some food and beverages.
“Come join in on a fun gathering to celebrate the next steps and to consider volunteering and developing some new relationships in the process,” a news release said. “Help to make the project a success. Mosaic Tea and Coffee, ‘community, conversation, cause!’ ”
