A reader reports:

“So sad to say the two Native Foods in DC are closing.”

Native Foods Cafe opened their first DC location at 18th and M St, NW back in September 2014 and in November of that year they opened their Penn Quarter location.

Another reader writes about a change.org petition he started asking “Native Foods to pay the workers through the end of the year”:

“I started this petition because Native Foods, with locations near Farragut North and Penn Quarter, gave its workers (and customers) just one week’s notice that they’re closing down on December 8 (Tuesday).

Stinks for customers, but even worse for the dozens of workers who lost their jobs with just one week’s notice and so close to the holidays!

My petition (disclaimer that I work for Change.org but am doing this independently because I really like Native Foods but think this is a bad business move for a company that talks about compassion so often) asks for Native Foods to pay the workers through the end of the year.”
