Local restaurants will power the Idaho Shakespeare Festival cafe, with proceeds helping food-insecure residents


City of Good and the Idaho Shakespeare Festival are teaming up for the 2022 season.
Proceeds from Cafe Shakespeare sales will directly support City of Good programs that aim to provide meals to children, families and refugees.

A cluster of local restaurants is powering City of Good – and will collaborate on the Cafe Shakespeare offering. The menu, still being developed, will be the same every week and may include proposals from each of the partners. Restaurants include Bittercrek, Fork, Certified Kitchen and others.

Proceeds from the collaboration will be used to fund City of Good fuel kits for food insecure community members.

“It’s such a natural fit for our organization,” said Britt, executive director of City of Good.
Udesen said. “We will use our existing partnerships with restaurants and producers to produce
unparalleled meals, snacks and beverages that showcase local food products. And best of all,
proceeds will support our programs serving the food insecure. It really is a win-win.

The menu will be very similar to what the cafe has offered in past seasons, which features a variety of deli items, picnic dinners, desserts and an assortment of beverages, beers and wines.

“The main difference for this season is that customers will have a direct impact on their community. By purchasing food from the Café, they will be supporting restaurants, local manufacturers and members of our community who are struggling with food insecurity,” said Idaho Shakespeare Festival General Manager Mark Hofflund.

Single tickets for the 2022 Shakespeare Festival season go on sale Friday, April 1.
the season runs from May 20 to September 25.
