This coming Sunday, June 23 will be Inside the Box's final day of service at Armature Works

Inside the Box is a social enterprise of Metropolitan Ministries, and has been fulfilling its incredible mission during its year and a half residency at Armature Works.

The cafe serves up fresh baked goods and meals while providing culinary arts education and hands-on vocational training to men and women transitioning out of homelessness.

All proceeds from purchases at Inside the Box go directly toward the ministry’s hunger programs to feed the hungry in the area. In the last year, 1,169,826 million meals have been served.

Have no fear, the program will still be going strong through catering and upcoming outposts at the Tampa International Airport and Orlando International Airport.

It has not yet been announced who will be taking over the corner stall, but more details will come as the space becomes vacant.

Until then, swing by Inside the Box to do good while eating good.
