Café in Maryland Raises the Bar
Anyone who needs a meal is treated like a paying customer
To expand dinner options for local residents, the Army's service center in Westminster, MD opened the Brass Hat Café earlier this year. Unlike the traditional meal center, the café is more of a complimentary community café where guests are served and treated as paying customers.
The café serves fresh, homemade meals every Monday through Wednesday from 4:30pm-6:00 p.m. to as many as 50 people and also offers food for carryout.
Every meal includes an entree, side dish and dessert. Meal options include a variety of homemade favorites such as baked ziti, chicken parmesan and bread pudding. Alternate meals are also offered each day to give customers more dinner options.
“Whether you are homeless, a senior citizen, or have a full time job and living paycheck to paycheck, we are more than happy to serve you,” said Nina Christian, Brass Hat Café founder. Ultimately, Brass Hat Café is for anyone that needs a meal, no questions asked.
