This is a challenging time for our city and beyond, and our hearts go out to all who have been impacted. Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our employees and guests; our team prides itself on taking care of guests each and every day, and we are extending our hospitality and support towards Vancouver’s community and those that are working hard within the city to keep us safe.
Beginning today, giovane cafe will offer complimentary hot and specialty coffee beverages, including giovane’s signature Banana Coconut Latte, for all front line healthcare workers through May 31, 2020. Patrons simply show their staff ID and the giovane baristas will prepare a fresh cup of joe on the house for take-out. Those eligible include health care workers, hospital staff, medical workers, and first-responders.
On Monday, April 6, giovane café + eatery will begin to offer an extended take-out and delivery menu featuring daily chefs’ pizzas and salads. The limited edition menu will launch the ‘Feed It Forward’ program; for every dish ordered, one dish will be donated to workers on the front line during these challenging times. The public can also opt to purchase a meal donation for a healthcare worker available through the café’s Ritual and DoorDash profile for $5.00 each. Each week, Fairmont Pacific Rim will deliver the collective donations by way of a healthy and nutritious meal to healthcare workers working to fight the spread of COVID-19.
We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and stay in close communication with our loyal guests and dedicated employees to ensure that our community is informed, connected and supported through these trying times.
