Kagen Coffee & Crepes serving free food to federal workers during shutdown
RICHLAND, Wash. — Kagen Coffee & Crepes is giving away food and drinks to federal workers who aren’t getting paid as the partial government shutdown continues into its fourth week.
Those workers just need to bring their government ID, and they can get free crepes and coffee or other beverages for their family. The restaurant is located in Richland’s Uptown Shopping Center off George Washington Way and Williams Boulevard.
“You can at least take your family out while you’re waiting to get paid. That shouldn’t even be something that you should even have to worry about, especially if you’re still working” said owner Kagen Cox. “I have family that are federal workers that, right now, are getting a paycheck that says “zero” on it.”
The owner said, for example, that his brother-in-law works in air traffic control, and he has had to work without pay since the government shutdown began 26 days ago. The shutdown is the longest in the nation’s history, and currently there is no end in sight.
“We can support you and you guys are always supporting us. So come on down. We’ll take care of you,” said Cox.
Kagen Coffee & Crepes will also be giving free 12 ounce drinks to teachers and school staff this week with valid school ID.
