Supporting healthcare with every drop!

The coffee kiosk in the lobby at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital is owned and operated by the Hospital Foundation, with proceeds directed to the  purchase of medical equipment.

Code Brew serves a variety of freshly baked goodies, sandwiches, soups and salads and freshly brews 100% organic free trade Spirit Bear coffee and espresso for lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, and other specialty drinks.

Volunteers assist staff during the busy times of the day and are a valuable part of the customer experience!

Code Brew delivers within NRGH

Let us provide the refreshments for your next meeting. From carafes of coffee and tea, to platters of sandwiches, wraps, sweets, fresh fruit or veggies.
Catering order forms can be emailed to or dropped off to the Kiosk staff.
24 hours’ notice is strongly recommended for food orders.

Raising Funds to Reduce Colonoscopy Wait Times

Code Brew is raising funds towards the new procedural suite for the Endoscopy Department at NRGH. The $1.5 million being raised by the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation will be used to fund the procedural suite, preparation rooms and all required medical equipment.

This project is urgently needed as colonoscopies are used to diagnose serious illnesses including Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis and Colon Cancer. There are over 3,500 patients who are currently waiting up to 12 months for a colonoscopy at NRGH. With the new procedural suite, wait times will be significantly reduced for this vital procedure which can save lives.

Learn more about this project here.


Our volunteer barista shifts are 2 to 3 hours a week with full training provided.  Volunteers at Code Brew learn new skills, meet new people, and help raise funds to buy medical equipment.

“Volunteering at Code Brew has taught me many things and one of the most valuable lessons I have received is that volunteering isn’t always about the hours but it’s about the experience. Every time I show up for my shift I get to learn something new and I get to meet all sorts of wonderful people! By simply making a customer coffee or remember a regular’s order, brings smiles to people’s faces, especially mine. I’m always left with a warm and happy feeling at the end of my shift, realizing that because I volunteer I made someone smile. Volunteering at Code Brew and working with the Brew family is such a special opportunity that I will always be thankful for. “   Baneesha Gill
