Southern California Urth Caffé locations begin raising funds Monday, April 13, to “Feed Our First Responders” for police officers, firefighters and paramedics in their communities

Individual Urth Caffé Lunch Box meals will be delivered to the local fire department and police departments nearest each Southern California Urth branch during the week of April 20, along with Urth’s signature heirloom, organic coffee and desserts.

Urth Caffés are located in Downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Orange, Laguna Beach, Hawthorne and Santa Monica (addresses for each location can be found at the end of this news release).

“Our neighbors can donate any dollar amount and Urth Caffé will match every dollar to provide individual Lunch Box meals to as many police officers, firefighters and paramedics as possible,” says Shallom Berkman, Urth Caffé co-founder and co-owner with his wife Jilla Berkman.

Each Urth Caffé Lunch Box is prepared with the finest, freshest ingredients sourced direct from many local, organic, sustainable farms as possible, he added.

Lunches include a choice of Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich, Albacore Tuna Salad Sandwich, Sprout Sandwich with Avocado and Hummus (vegan), Grilled Vegetable Sandwich or Chicken Curry Sandwich, along with Urth cookies (organic oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip pecan cookies) and a fresh hand-cut seasonal fruit cup.  The Berkman’s will also serve their signature heirloom, organic coffee and fresh baked desserts at each department.

Guests can donate to “Feed Our First Responders” April 13 to 19 at any Urth Caffé branch, online at , and make donations by calling the café.

“Thanks to everyone for helping us nourish, care for and show our gratitude to our local heroes,” Berkman says.
