Five Percent Giving

In 2016 we decided to dedicate 5% of the cafe's retail sales of our products (bread, bagels, pretzels & granola) to a different cause or organization chosen by our worker-owners every month. Our goal is to both financially support and draw attention to work we believe in.

In September we are supporting a fundraiser for Dan Tower, a local farmer whose delightful produce we love to feature in a variety of our offerings, from apple butter to peach pies. Dan Tower Farm produces some of the best fruit Western New York has to offer, including plums, peaches, apples, cherries and more. You can find their goodies at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmer’s Market as well as at the Lexington Co-op.

We welcome suggestions for future contributions! If you'd like to suggest one, please email us. Here's where we've donated in the past:
