The giveaway is in celebration of National Coffee Day, which falls on Sept. 29 this year. It’s also sure to be a welcome gesture to Fairfield Metro commuters, who continue to utilize a station that lacks a coffee vendor and public restrooms.

Sen. Hwang and The Buzz Truck will be set up in the parking lot side of the station (northbound) from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 28. Just look for the little black school bus!

Founded by Southport residents Alex and Jessica Grutkowski, The Buzz Truck hit the streets of Fairfield County in April of last year, serving organic, locally-roasted coffee and made-from-scratch baked goods. This mobile coffee shop sources the best of what’s local from other small businesses, including Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters, the only organic roaster in Fairfield County, and Sweet & Simple Bakery in Fairfield’s Greenfield Hill, among others.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating National Coffee Day with Senator Hwang and Fairfield Metro commuters,” Jessica Grutkowski said. “We know how important a good cup of coffee is to starting the day off on the right foot and we’re happy to help meet that need.”

“I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate National Coffee Day than to offer a free cup to Fairfield Metro commuters from a locally owned business,” Sen. Hwang said. “It’s a small way I can show appreciation to commuters as we continue to work with the entire Fairfield delegation and the Department of Transportation on both short- and long-term solutions to address the inadequacies at the station.”

“I always appreciate hearing from commuters about the benefits and challenges they experience as Metro-North riders,” Sen. Hwang added. “It makes me a better advocate for them.”
