Local restaurants to power Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s cafe, with proceeds helping food-insecure residents


City of Good and the Idaho Shakespeare Festival are partnering up for the 2022 season.
Proceeds from Cafe Shakespeare sales will directly support City of Good’s programs which work to provide meals for children, families, and refugees.

A group of local restaurants powers City of Good – and will collaborate on the Cafe Shakespeare offering. The menu, still under development, will be the same each week and may include offerings from each of the partners. Restaurants include Bittercrek, Fork, Certified Kitchen and others.

Proceeds from the collaboration will go toward funding City of Good’s fuel kits for food-insecure members of the community.

“This is such a natural fit for our organization,” City of Good Executive Director Britt
Udesen said. “We will use our existing restaurant and grower partnerships to produce
unparalleled meals, snacks, and beverages that highlight local food products. And best of all,
proceeds will support our programs serving those experiencing food insecurity. It’s truly a win-win.”

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

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

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