WHAT CAN I DO TO SUPPORT COFFEE SHOPS IN VANCOUVER DURING COVID19

What can I do to support coffee shops in Vancouver during COVID19?

This part is where I’m supposed to write something daft and witty, hooking you in for a fun article.

I promise you that this is coming over the next few weeks, but this time it’s not funny.

This time I need to get to the point.

Vancouver Coffee Shops are hurting right now and they need your help.

I’ve had lots of you ask “What can I do to support coffee shops in Vancouver during COVID19” and here are my thoughts.

Steps you can take to support coffee shops

  1. If they’re selling them, buy a voucher for yourself or someone else. This obviously can’t be used right now most of the time, but you can put some cold hard cash into very empty pockets right now and spend it later.
  2. Order online from them. Some are delivering by hand, others are using services like UberEats, Doordash etc. This counts for beans, coffee, food etc.

List of Shops You Can Order From

This is going to be a constantly updated list. If you happen to see something I’ve missed please immediately email me by clicking this link.

If you are a coffee shop and need help setting up an online store or gift cards, please email me and I’ll donate some of my time for free to help you achieve this.

Please note that I’ve made the decision that I am not promoting any service that requires people to visit the venues.
