These extraordinary times call for creative thinking especially for community based organizations. We will continue to keep our mission alive and will be bringing you music, art, dance, culture and sustainability to your homes through social media and live webinars. Look out for an upcoming blog post including our schedule for upcoming live webcasts and uploads.

On the other hand, in order to help supplement WorldBeat Center’s monthly operations we have decided to open our Cafe for delivery only using our following partners – Postmates – DoorDash – UberEats – GrubHub. We will have a limited menu including NEW superfoods, smoothies and antiviral tea that will help boost your immune system.

We are following the recommended San Diego County food handling guidelines and will be sanitizing thoroughly throughout the day with your health and ours in mind. We will be open on weekends starting April 3rd, Friday-Sunday, 11AM-5PM until further notice.

In these times it’s going to take the community to save the community
