It'sa restaurant without a cash register. Diners won't get a check at the end of their meal. Instead they're only asked to donate what they can.
The Community Table in Lexington opened Monday night. It's goal is to alleviate hunger in Rockbridge County. Everyone is welcome to a hot meal.
"I think it's a good deed you know that people do this cause of the economy and stuff," says Bobby White.
Opening night was a success. 40 volunteers served customers an appetizer, salad, soup, dinner and dessert. Dinner was chicken, mashed potatoes, and stewed squash.
"It's great," says customer Susan Harris, "I like it. The taters are wonderful."
There was even a harp to add some ambiance.
The Community Table will be open every Monday night and make a full course meal out of donated food.
"When they're done we hope that they're full and they're happy and satisfied and will come back again next week," says Andy Wolfe with the Community Table.
Organizers hope to expand the Community Table and serve people restaurant-style food without the cost three days a week.
