Help Our Local Restaurants Help Needy Residents

Uploaded: May 8, 2020
Recently my wife went to the downtown food closet and asked what they needed most. The answer was salads.
She then went to Sprout Cafe on University (one of our favorites) and asked could we donate so they could make salads for the food closet.
The idea was well received and if you go to their website Sprout you can donate. Our donation matched by a friend allowed Sprout to make 250 salads,
Since then others have donated and they have expanded the donated food to other local organizations AND that allowed them to move their closing time from 2 pm to 6 pm AND hire more staff back.

Coupa Cafe Coupa also has a donation program for meals for frontline folks at Stanford Hospital as well as a new grocery service. This has allowed them to expand hours and hire back some staff.

If you know of other such opportunities, please share.


We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
