Sharing a Coffee (& Love)

A cafe giving customers a chance to a buy coffee for someone who can't afford it

The downtown coffee shop, Nook Café, is giving customers a chance to share a little love with others. It's through the simple act of buying a $3 coffee and snack for someone else.

It's called the suspended coffee program.

Patrons pay $3 and get a button to place in a jar on the cafe counter. It can be redeemed by anyone who can’t afford to buy a drink or food.

It gives people a chance to share what they have. It does it in a way that honours the dignity of everyone involved.
