While the new coronavirus continues spreading across the nation, frontline healthcare workers have been facing constant battles, treating patients day and night.

We would like to thank all the health care professionals who are engaged in medical care to protect the lives of new coronavirus patients in environments with severe infection risks. We at Far Yeast Brewing are committed to doing what we can to support them in this difficult task. 

Our company-owned bar “Far Yeast Tokyo Craft Beer & Bao” in Shibuya is currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The facility and kitchen staff have shifted daily operations to making nutritionally balanced, delicious lunch and delivering it directly to medical staff.

We started offering lunch boxes to Keio University Hospital on Tuesday, April 21st. The background history of this project is that one of Far Yeast Brewing’s executive staffs graduated from Keio University, and we, as Far Yeast brewing, used to participate in their alumni event “Keio Union Mitakai Convention” in the past. So we had a connection with Keio University, and this time, we proposed this donating bento box project to a pediatrician doctor at Keio University Hospital. The pediatric team kindly enough accepted this project, and we started providing lunchboxes to them.

At the same time, we launched a support project for healthcare workers. We titled it as “Clap for Carers,” and we are seeking supporters who can support the bento donation activities for healthcare workers.  We released product bundling called “Clap for Carers Support,” which is a set of craft beers and branded glassware, and we pledge using a part of sales for supporting this donation activity. We hope that this circle of support for healthcare professionals will spread and grow. And people will strengthen solidarity to overcome this crisis as soon as possible.

Clap for Cares – Healthcare professionals support project. 

You can support healthcare professionals by purchasing “Clap for Cares Support Set”. 

We will use a part of the sales of this set for funding the support activities to deliver the lunch box to the healthcare professionals.
