With a mission “to inspire one person, one cup, and one neighbourhood at a time”, Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More is delighted to announce that Starbucks is joining the Mayor’s Souper Sampler for a second year in a row, giving patrons an opportunity to indulge in a cup of their finest brew.

From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a company that not only celebrated coffee, but one that also brought a feeling of connection. At CSC, “connection” is integral to everything we do as we strive towards our vision of a community where everyone feels at home – valued, connected and empowered. CSC is privileged to have the support of our friends and neighbours at Starbucks located at 1 Hespeler Rd., in Cambridge. Thank you for joining us once again this year in support of the clients of CSC!
