This holiday season The Human Bean served up holiday cheer. Baristas participated in the Annual Greystone Court/Access can food drive in Medford, Oregon. The night before Christmas eve we served 20 gallons of chocolate milk. Thanks to Umpqua Dairy for helping to provide the milk. We were able to serve Hot Cocoa to those donating to the cause. Families and friends checked out the brightly decorated street, our baristas warmed their hearts and bellies with holiday cheer! Check out pictures of the event below.

Holiday Lights Light the Way to Giving
Greystone Court has long held the tradition of lighting the way to community giving. Canned goods are donated to our local community while everyone enjoys the lights. Consequently everyone helps feed the hungry in the community. Holiday spirit is felt throughout the court!
Access is a local organization that provides food, housing, warmth and essential services to low income individuals and families. Residents in Jackson County have been served by Access since 1976.
Greystone is not the only event that The Human Bean and Access work together. Since 2010 The Human Bean has held an annual food drive that benefits Access. The event is held in August because this is typically the time of year that donations are at the lowest point.
