Dough Nation is a Metropolitan Ministries Social Enterprise similar to its predecessor Inside the Box.

It brings together the trendy dessert concept of raw edible cookie dough and doing good for your community. The new spot will serve several flavors including the classic favorites like dark chocolate, s’mores and more. You can enjoy it in the cafe or take it home and even bake it!

Chef Cliff Barsi is behind this new concept, he has created the perfect concoction with just the right ingredients. And it tastes amazing, according to Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine, WFLA News Channel 8 and several other local publications.

Dough Nation will serve as a training platform for the students of the Metropolitan Ministries culinary program transitioning out of the homelessness. Several graduates of this program now work at the best local restaurants.

All proceeds from your purchases from Dough Nations will go directly to feed the hungry in Tampa Bay. In the last year, 1,169,826 million meals have been served through Metropolitan Ministries’ hunger programs.
