These past few weeks, our hearts and our minds have been with the people of Ukraine. As an unjust war forces Ukrainians to flee their homes, many are unable to feed themselves and their families. Fortunately, our friends at World Central Kitchen met the challenge almost immediately, serving meals within hours of the initial invasion.
As part of our commitment to our global community, La Colombe will be making a $10,000 donation to World Central Kitchen to support their work providing hot, nourishing meals to refugees and the Ukrainian community. In addition to the initial donation, La Colombe will donate $2 to World Central Kitchen for every box of Corsica sold, now through March 23. Our goal is to help World Central Kitchen feed those who have been displaced and made vulnerable during this war. *
World Central Kitchen’s food distribution operations are now set up in Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, and Ukraine. They are partnering with local restaurants, caterers, and food trucks to provide nourishing meals at border crossing, shelters, and other refugee communities.
They have also opened a kitchen in Przemyśl, Poland, from which they are cooking meals to provide even more support. Across the five countries, they are now serving 50,000+ hot meals per day. As this crisis is evolving rapidly, this number will continue to grow.
To support the cause, grab a box of Corsica on our site, in our cafes, at one of our hospitality partners, or wherever you get your La Colombe coffee.
* From March 9, 2022-March 23, 2022, $2 of every box of La Colombe Corsica purchased online, in cafes, and in select retailers, restaurants, and hospitality partners will benefit World Central Kitchen. This contribution will go toward a total minimum of $15,000 and maximum donation of $30,000.
