Elderberries Threefold Café is a small organic, vegan, gluten/soy-free café in Los Angeles, California that strives to nourish both the individual and the community.
“Kindness, Care & Consideration” are the three pillars that people at Elderberries uphold – nurturing an inclusive community by connecting to the marginalized and the underprivileged.
Hence, the friendships nurtured between Elderberries and their homeless friends run deep – from a free cup of coffee or a warm meal shared to taking care of friends when they become ill or when they need help.
The Elderberries community participates actively in The Poor People’s Campaign – a movement founded in the ’60s by Martin Luther King, Jr. that is now carried by Rev. William Barbers. They hold several peaceful protests all over the US, rallying against racism, capitalism, ecological destruction, and moral decline.
Elderberries’ carriers Frank Agrama and Dottie Zold also co-organize the annual “How We Will” meetings with other organizations, where they focus on systemic change through the practice and concepts of Social Threefolding for a more humane and just society.
