Barman's Fund helps New Orleans Street Exchange: Come out and 'Drink with Purpose!'

This month the Barman's Fund of New Orleans will give a boost to the city's only street paper, the New Orleans Street Exchange. According to the newspaper's newsletter, "the Barman’s Fund is a motley assortment of bartenders who pledge all earnings from one shift a month for charitable organizations."

The N.O. Street Exchange is a street newspaper benefiting the city's homeless community and addressing issues of poverty. The proceeds from the Barman’s Fund this April will help the N.O. Street Exchange purchase supplies for the newspaper and aid its vendor program

This means that when you visit one of the fund's participating bars during the shifts identified below, you will "drink with purpose."
