Kansas City’s The Roasterie has teamed with JFS to create a special Passover blend of coffee that will support the community food pantry. 10 percent of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the JFS food pantry. It is certified Kosher by The Vaad HaKashruth of Kansas City. Buy it at The Roasterie’s web site as well as area grocery stores including Hen House in Leawood and Fresh Market in Overland Park. Shoppers are encouraged to ask for it where The Roasterie coffee is regularly sold.
