Giving Back

Tennessee Rural Development Fund is Blessed to Partner with Exceptional Bean. The Exceptional Bean is an inclusive coffee shop that started as a small dream and has quickly become a reality. Thanks to the community of Cookeville Tn., Founder Cigi England, and Friends. 

 The Exceptional Bean is a non-profit organization that serves delicious coffee and cultivates an environment that is encouraging and welcoming for “All”.  Cigi’s vision has created a space for individuals with disabilities to find employment and truly become part of the community. Thanks again to Cigi & the Gang at “The Bean”
