Over the past decade, Fazenda has had the good fortune to partner with restaurants, bakeries, and countless other hospitality businesses throughout the region and country. These businesses are driven by people who have given their life''s work to bringing our communities togther.
Three weeks ago we learned that - of no fault of their own - their work of bringing people together is now a threat to public health. Overnight tens of thousands of servers, cooks, drivers, bakers, baristas, managers and more have lost their livelihoods. We've seen the impact first hand at Fazenda, as our wholesale business has ground to a stand still.
We''ve kept our lights on and roaster drum spinning to support the remaining customers operating on a take-out or delivery basis, along with supplying grocery stores. Now more than ever, we''re relying on direct consumer business through our website to keep our business alive.
We're writing today because we want to use our ability to still be open to give back. Now through April 20th, we're donating 10% of all non-subscription online sales to the Restaurant Strong Fund set up by Sam Adams & The Greg Hill Foundation. The Fund is providing grants up to $1000 to full time restaurant workers in Massachusetts and other states who are depending on wages & tips to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families.
You can shop with us online at FazendaCoffee.com. We are shipping orders Monday through Saturday, with same-day shipping for orders placed by 9AM & free shipping for orders over $35 in-region.
With more people than ever brewing coffee at home, we hope you'll take us up on the opportunity to help us support the front line workers of the hospitality industry who need our support now more than ever.
