Being that we’re still a new and growing business (we’re not even two years old yet), we’re still working on our charitable focus. We have decided, like our cousin The Blue Room, to focus on just a few special organizations and concentrate the whole of our efforts on those few. But, just like any good small business, we feel it necessary to give little bits here and there too. Below you’ll find our major effort and our little “bits” too, all of which grow day by day as we become passionate about a cause.

McKinley School Garden to Lunch Project
Our friend Catherine has shed so much light on our lives through her work with children. In the last 7 years particularly while she’s been the Program Director at The McKinley Prep High School in the Fenway. It’s not like high school isn’t hard enough already, but imagine if yours didn’t even have a cafeteria? It started with a little something called “The Breakfast Club” where a group of students decided to start cooking breakfast for their classmates in the morning to now a full-scale attempt to get a school lunch program off the ground. Our start: get Stacey Daley (organic farmer extraordinaire) from Central Bottle and Nick and Liz from The Blue Room to start a vegetable garden in the Victory Garden at the Fenway. Thanks to the McKinley Prep High School teachers who procured the spot, we got to cleaning it up and in the spring we’ll be planting veggies for the kids to grow and then store until school starts. Fund raising planning is underway!
