ABOUT FONTE

OUR STORY

Let’s fight food insecurity.

Fonte was born from the idea that anybody can make a difference. We are redefining the traditional restaurant experience, placing an emphasis on equity and community. We are able to reinvest in our community through a buy one, give one model. Purchasing a meal from Fonte will provide four meals worth of food to our food-bank partners across the city.

Fonte aims to fight food insecurity through our Give-Back Model. When you purchase a meal from Fonte, you’re also purchasing a meal for someone who experiences food insecurity.

OUR FOOD

Foboccia
/Fuh-BAH-tcha/

Fonte original concept combining “la boccia” (Italian word for bowl) and “Focaccia” (An olive oil-based bread)

Our menu is inspired by the enticing flavors of Roman street food. We’ve refreshed your favorite traditional meals into an exciting, customizable experience. Taste the flavors of Rome right here in Columbus, Ohio. A meal from Fonte can be enjoyed on the go, or at a table with family and friends, but don’t forget a fork and knife. 

Fonte’s menu was crafted with the help of the Mid-Ohio Food Collective.
