Our hub, 541 Eatery & Exchange is a volunteer-run cafe and gathering space, where customers have the opportunity to purchase buttons, which others can use to help purchase a meal or drink.

In sharing with their spirit of exchange, we invite Frost Bites patrons to purchase an additional ticket that can be used by a community member in need.

Select the ‘Pay-It-Forward’ ticket option when purchasing your Frost Bites tickets online. You will also have the option to purchase these tickets when buying at the door.
