About Us


The Art of Giving Back Cafe and Catering Company

The Art of Giving Back Cafe and Catering Company is a social enterprise developed by local nonprofit, Community Action Commission of Santa Barbara County. All net profits contribute directly to CAC's Senior Nutrition Program which provides hot, nutritious, USDA-approved meals to low-income seniors. CAC is proud to serve daily lunch at our thirteen Healthy Table sites and deliver lunches to home-bound seniors through the Healthy at Home program. The money raised from the cafe will go towards providing healthy meals to around 1,200 seniors annually!  



The Art of Giving Back Cafe (located in the Santa Barbara Public Health building, see map on Contact Us page) has recently been refurbished and boasts free WiFi for customers, a complimentary meeting room with a catering order, and a robust menu of delicious breakfast and lunch items.



Additionally, the cafe can provide catering for both large and small events. We would love to provide breakfast or lunch for your next meeting or gathering! There are a multitude of options that provide you a healthy, affordable meal and give back to seniors in the community at the same time!
