Broke Spoke in Lexington KY is located at 501 W. Sixth Street, behind West Sixth Brewery.  In fact, there is a certain vibrant energy that seems to permeate this mixed use former warehouse structure known as The Breadbox. West Sixth Street is a community-minded venture, offering use of its space once a week on Wednesday nights for free Yoga classes by AnneDean Dotson.

And yet a ‘third wheel’ in this hub of community-minded business is Foodchain, a nonprofit that  provides education and hands-on training for indoor sustainable food production and processing. If you’re enjoying a  beer at West Sixth Brewery and decide to order some food from the adjoining Smithtown Seafood’s farm-to-table menu, chances are that a portion of your meal price will be donated to Foodchain as well.
