Combating Homelessness With Second Shot Coffee Shop

Combating Homelessness With Second Shot Coffee Shop

 

“The average person in the UK is two pay checks away from being homeless. It can happen to anyone”, says Julius Ibrahim (@juliusanthonyibrahim) the founder of the Second Shot Coffee Shop (@secondshotcoffee) located in the heart of Bethnal Green, London.

The coffee shop has an important reason for existing as it was created to employ, train and to feed the homeless. Every customer can buy a meal or drink for someone who lives on the street.

We only have one meal on the Pay It Forward wall at the moment!! Hakim comes in everyday for an English breakfast tea and a porridge. He's been on the streets for a little while and like lots of rough sleepers, Hakim's on the waiting list for many different services. Despite his struggles, Hakim comes in with a smile on his face and brightens our day. Thank you to him and to all of our awesome customers for paying it forward and making it possible!! #MoreThanCoffee #SecondShotCoffee #SocialEnterprise #Cafe #Homelessness #PayItForward #socialchange #Socent #London #EastLondon #BethnalGreen #LondonCoffee #CoffeeShop #Barista #Baristalife #caffeine #cafelife #flatwhite #espresso #latte #Brewing #Chemex #V60 #Aeropress
