The Joy Bus Diner is a 100% nonprofit restaurant providing chef-crafted, classic diner meals with a local, friendly, and humanitarian flare. The newly opened restaurant serves breakfast and lunch with all profits going to the Joy Bus foundation. It also will function as a kitchen commissary for Caraway and her two dozen volunteers to make meals for homebound patients. Locally grown produce from Crooked Sky Farms, as well as other local purveyors throughout the Valley, provide the goods, which enable The Joy Bus Diner to support its core focus and charity mission – a free meal delivery program for cancer patients Valley-wide.
Since 2011, The Joy Bus is the only local service of its kind and is focused on providing not only quality food but also personal attention to homebound cancer patients. Their free service has helped build awareness of the lack of at home care needed for cancer patients, and each week the Joy Bus crafts meals and warm conversation for those in need. Help Joy Bus continue their mission, by swinging by to savor hearty, made-to-order breakfast and lunch fare served inside a warm, welcoming space at the SE corner Shea & the 51 highway.
