    Bostonians love their coffee, and while New England's loyalty to Dunkin' Donuts runs deep, there are plenty of out-of-towners making moves to contend for a portion of the local love. Here's a look at the non-local coffee companies that have started to lay down roots in Boston, many of which already provide the beans that fuel some of the local shops.

Have you heard of Liam's Lunches of Love? Liam is an 11-year-old Central Square native who has made it his mission to help the homeless. Learn more about his family’s lunch program in their #CitizensOfCentralSQ spotlight on our blog:

    #CitizensOfCentralSQ Spotlight: Liam's Lunches of Love
    Meet The Hannons! 11-year-old Liam and his father, Scott, founded Liam's Lunches of Love in June of 2017 and are now serving around 50 to 70 lunches per week to those less fortunate in our Central Square neighborhood.

“Sure, for those hustling to work or school the alley may seem like just a gritty passageway between street and parking lot. But for the more leisurely and present, the passage could be a conversation starter, a way to connect strangers.” Read The Boston Globe’s feature on #GraffitiAlley: http://bit.ly/2I14KkB

    In this hidden alley, a museum of modern art - The Boston Globe
    Stop walking so fast. Slower. No, even slower. And stop looking at your phone. Pause. Look around. There is beauty in the world. In this hidden alley, the proof is all around you. Cambridge's Richard B. Modica Way - also known as "Graffiti Alley" - is an 80-foot stretch of constantly changing graffiti, street art, signage, and posters.
