The Nourishing Neighbors Program is a system we install into local restaurants that enables customers to donate money towards a stranger in need’s future meal. At participating restaurant locations, customers are given the option to add a donation to the program at the end of their purchase which can then be utilized by someone in need. Those donations are used to create gift cards of $5, $10, and $15 value that we give out to local organizations that service the homeless and low-income population. In order to receive a free meal from our Nourishing Neighbors Program, all one has to do is pop into a participating organization and inquire about the Nourishing Neighbors program and the gift cards.
We are so proud and excited to announce that AB Crepes is our very first participating restaurant! At their location on Railroad Ave. in Bellingham, WA, you can donate towards a neighbor-in-need’s future meal through the Nourishing Neighbors program today!
