Nonprofit café in Grand Forks County Office Building to close; supported mental health services

Story by Kevin Bonham

The 4th Street Eatery, the little luncheonette on the sixth floor of the Grand Forks County Office Building, will close Oct. 31.

Prairie Harvest Mental Health, a nonprofit serving adults with serious mental illness, is losing too much money and exhausting too many other resources to keep open, according to Executive Director Debra Johnson.

“It was really a hard decision for us and for our management,” she said.

Prairie Harvest informed the Grand Forks County Commission of the decision this week. The county provides the kitchen and café space free of charge.

The 4th Street Eatery, which opened in October 2006, provides a bird’s-eye view of the Red River and was a popular spot during periods of spring flooding.
