Breadcoin and Ben’s Chili Bowl Team Up

Breadcoin and Ben’s Chili Bowl Team Up

Breadcoin partnered with DC legend, Ben’s Chili Bowl during the government shutdown in January, 2019 to ensure that workers without paychecks could receive a meal.

Founded in 1958, Ben’s Chili Bowl is a landmark DC restaurant that has provided meals and much more to the community for over 60 years. We’re launching our partnership on MLK Day, Monday, January 21st in the spirit of Dr. King and Ben’s long history of giving back to the community.

Breadcoin and Ben’s Chili Bowl are excited to be among the people and businesses engaging the community to meet its needs.

Feeding Feds During Shutdown Initiative

Feeding Feds During Shutdown Initiative

Join us in making a difference! Breadcoin Foundation, a DC-based nonprofit, is providing a way for the community to feed unpaid TSA and other government employees and support staff during the shutdown.

Breadcoins are a food token that you purchase and give to someone in need.  They can also be given to nonprofits meeting needs.  In this case, your donation will help make an impact by providing funding to immediately feed and encourage beleaguered government workers, who have just missed their first paycheck.

We are raising $7000 to provide a meal for any TSA or other government employee working without pay.  In conjunction with committed, participating food vendors, your funds will go toward putting enough Breadcoins in the hands of these workers, with about five coins ($2.20 value each) providing a complete meal at the airport.

Government employees can receive food tokens valued under $20 under the governmental ethics guidelines.  We want to thank them for their service and let them know that the public appreciates their work under stressful conditions and without pay.  This is but one example of Breadcoins being used as a tool to link community needs with generous folks wanted to meet those needs.

Thanks in advance for your contributions to this cause that means so much to the team that serves to make Breadcoin happen.
