Des Moines Café to Provide Prisoners With Vegan Food

New World Café in Des Moines pledges to help feed incarcerated activists and animal-rights prisoners.


Soon-to-open New World Café in Des Moines, IA is a new blend of philanthropy and vegan eco-consciousness. The new establishment, which is set to be the first-ever all-vegan café, juice and coffee bar in Des Moines, is pledging to donate a portion of its proceeds to help activists and animal-rights prisoners in need of vegan food while serving time in prison. Set to open its doors in September, founders Adam Senecaut and Madeline Krantz are focused on community building and environmental sustainability. Café patrons will even have access to free wi-fi and literature related to animal-rights and environmental issues.
