Socially Conscious Cafe Now Serving Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and the World

Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside has popped a new business: Lost + Found Cafe founded by owners, Kane Ryan and Salomeh Jalali.

But for Kane and Salomeh, it’s more than serving delicious treats and food, tea and coffee. The cafe is unquestionably a social enterprise.  Their charity section is packed with products from developing countries and are all sourced from women’s groups, charities and NGOs. The proceeds from their products go directly to the Dirty Wall Project Foundation. The funds raised will not only benefit the cafe’s existing projects and families in these developing countries, but will also provide the cafe an opportunity to begin helping residents in Downtown Eastside.
