Bean’s Café reopens after two weeks of cleaning and testing

Posted On: LastEdited

After extensive testing and scrubbing, Bean’s Cafe reopened its doors on Thursday.

The day shelter and soup kitchen was closed for two weeks due to an incident involving blood that was not taken care of properly.

“We had to be 100 percent sure that our building is safe,” Bean’s Café Executive Director Lisa Sauder said.

For the past two weeks Sauder said crews disinfected, tore out carpet and threw away anything that may have been contaminated by a blood spill that wasn’t reported right away or cleaned up correctly.

An estimated 23-thousand pounds of food and equipment had to be discarded.

On the first day back in business volunteers served a simple lunch with the little food that was available.

“It was hard on all of us when they closed because we weren’t sure where to go to eat,” Bean’s Café client Linda parsons.

The cost of the closure and repairs is unknown.

“We are still in the process but it’s substantial,” Sauder said.

Beans cafe staff are asking for the publics help to restock the shelves.

Sauder says Bean’s Café can’t afford to do it alone.

Wells Fargo will match every cash donation, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 between now and March 31.

You can make a donation on the non-profits website.
