541 Barton St E, Hamilton, ON, L8L 2Z2
541 is a cafe that believes everyone deserves access to good food. We give people the opportunity to help someone else pay for their meal by “buying buttons”. Each button is worth $1, and anyone can use up to 5 buttons a day from the button jar to buy whatever they would like from the menu.
We believe there is dignity in choice, and that eating together fosters a diverse community of belonging around the table.
We use our space and proceeds from food sales to host free community groups and youth programming.
We are collecting data to better understand who is looking for work and what kind of opportunities jobseekers are searching for. This data is completely anonymous and non-personally identifiable.
