Cru Cafe loves being able to serve Charleston local, creative dishes of all types, but unfortunately the fact that many families in the lowcountry can’t afford to feed their children or themselves remains. During this time of year, especially, we feel the urgency of those needing food and help for their families. Cru is actively involved in Charleston Chef’s Feed The Need, a local organization that involves restaurants throughout the area to assist in feeding those in need each Wednesday year round, but you can be involved too! Here are some fun and local ways for you to get involved this season:
