At Sally’s Café, a Mental Health Center of Denver vocational rehabilitation program, food feeds more than our bodies

Denverite | February 14, 2020

A pipe outside burst on a chilly morning, just hours before a Valentine’s celebration was planned at Sally’s Café.

James Walker happened to have come in early for his evening shift at the café. He saw his colleagues doing what they could to prepare despite having no running water. He pitched in to help scoop ground turkey into meatballs.

Walker is training as he works at Sally’s Café, which is located at and serves clients and staff of a Mental Health Center of Denver location in Baker. Walker said his kitchen skills have improved. His reaction to Thursday’s setback — which in the end did not derail the special annual meal designed to show a little love to Sally’s regulars — was evidence of the resilience that the job-readiness program is also trying to foster.
