What is The ComeTogether Cafe Fund?
Listening to cafes and baristas around the country, it’s clear the financial deficit due to the COVID-19 pandemic is greater than originally anticipated. From updating health and safety protocols, decreasing hours and staffing, to complete closures, the pandemic has put a stress on coffee businesses greater than anyone could have anticipated. Moreover, the impact has been even greater for small businesses owned by minorities and marginalized individuals.
ComeTogether.coffee is now a place to donate money specifically to coffee businesses who need it most.
How do you donate?
We need your help to make sure the specialty coffee industry we all love can survive this pandemic! Big or small, every donation makes a difference. Please click “Donate Now” to head to our RallyUp page.Donate Now
