BROOKLIN, ON February 5, 2018 –

The Russell I. Alexander Charitable Giving Fund provides grants and financial support to community organizations that are doing meaningful work, but may not be as visible as some of their larger counterparts. As part of this giving fund, 541 Café and Eatery has been provided with a donation in the amount of $2,500.00. 541 Café and Eatery opened its doors in 2013 and has served marginalized members in their community ever since.

541 has been highlighted in the press for their unique button exchange program. Patrons of 541 are encouraged to purchase button’s for $1.00 each, which then can be redeemed by community members in need to purchase affordable and nutritious meals.

541 is a non-profit and volunteer driven organization, and the proceeds from food sales are used to facilitate programs.

Sue Carr, 541’s Executive Director, will be using the donation funds towards “buttons which are a valuable resource at 541 as they are used to feed the hungry”.
