We put together this special blend to help support causes that are important to us and we hope important to you.
A simple cup of coffee can bring us together and evoke feelings of happiness, joy and comfort. So we figured why not channel all of that goodness and support causes that make our world a better place.
Each quarter we will donate the net proceeds from the sale of our Unity Blend to a cause that we believe can make a difference.
Money raised from January – March 2021 will be donated to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. Since 1986, the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has served 1 in 7 Virginians struggling with hunger who reside in Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, Williamsburg, and the counties of Gloucester, James City, Mathews, Surry and York.
Working with partner agencies, the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has provided almost 178 million meals over the last 35 years. Their mission is to “distribute food effectively through collaborative efforts that minimize hunger, promote nutrition and encourage self-reliance through education.”
Here are a few of their outreach programs:
The Backpack Program serves over 1,600 students during the school year and 600 students over the summer who live in low income neighborhoods in the Greater Peninsula. Students receive weekly backpacks filled with healthy, nutritious food items.
Kids Cafe is an after-school program which promotes health, education and safety to at-risk 5 – 18 year olds.
Mobile Pantry delivers and distributes fresh, healthy food to the community based on the number of children who qualify for free school lunches. Clients usually receive an average of 2 – 4 fresh fruit and vegetables weighing around 20 pounds along with other grocery items.
