Our Social Impact

We help the local food economy. Almost all of our food and beverages are sourced locally.

We help bring about a vibrant community by creating public community space, by hosting musicians 2-4 times a month, and by connecting businesses around Fairfield County with employees.

We employ developmentally disabled interns to ten week periods to develop skills to enable them to be employed elsewhere.  Our 14 interns since 2014 have all developed new skills and moved on to another step in their career exploration process. 64% of these interns are currently employed in the community or actively seeking employment.

A diverse workforce increases morale. Teams that include people with disabilities have higher productivity, longevity and lower absenteeism and turnover.
