Bean’s Cafe delivers
Over the last 30 years, Bean’s Café has grown from a small warehouse operation to serving more than 800 meals a day to Alaska’s needy. Bean’s Café makes up half of Bean’s Café Inc. and works with adults in terms of meals, deliveries, night shelter, mail service, transportation and social service. The Children’s Lunchbox division of the main company feeds children in elementary schools in Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Bean’s Café Inc. serves more than 500,000 meals a year on a $1.5 million budget through the help of in-kind donations, bulk purchases, volunteers, economies of scale and cooperation with the Food Bank of Alaska.
