Kuu-us Café and Gifts raises funds for Kuu-us Crisis Line Society

A new café and gift store in Port Alberni, on Vancouver Island, offers a unique menu of traditional Nuu-chah-nulth food and raises funds for a local non-profit.

Kuu-us Café and Gifts, located on Gertrude Street, officially opened to the public on Jan. 15. Todd Flaro, manager of the store, says the response from the community has been positive.

“And the food’s amazing,” he says. “We’ve sold out every day we’ve been open.”
