Breadcoin and KIPP DC, a charter school, have an exciting new partnership.
Our donor-funded Breadcoins go into the hands of the counseling staff at each of the three schools that serve Pre-K to eighth grade on the KIPP DC: Webb Campus in the Ivy City neighborhood.
They in turn have the opportunity to give Breadcoins to families that find themselves with “too much month at the end of the money” or to use them to incentivize behaviors (in this case attendance and punctuality) that will improve learning.
Catch the enthusiasm of the KIPP DC: Spring Academy staff that created this video to explain the “On Time” challenge that rewards kids who are on time with Breadcoins to spend on a hearty treat at one of our newest vendors, Texas Chicken and Burgers, just down the block.
A “community response to hunger” is how we describe Breadcoin, and this partnership is the epitome of that.
WASHINGTON, DC – A DC-based organization announced two new participating vendors in Washington, D.C. accepting breadcoin tokens as payment for food and drinks at their establishments.
Breadcoin is excited to welcome the new vendors serving the Anacostia and Ivy City neighborhoods. We are thankful for all of the food providers committed to the DC community.
The new vendors are:
Mama’s Pizza Kitchen
2028 MLK Jr. Ave., SE
Texas Chicken and Burgers
1239 Mount Olivet Rd., NE
