SEATTLE, Washington (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Coffee giant Starbucks today announced an unprecedented move to help feed America’s hungry population.
The Seattle-based company is parterning with the Food Donation Connection and Feeding America in a program known as FoodShare that will allow the company to donate all of its leftover brewed coffee to food banks. With this program, FDC and Feeding America will pick up the coffee at 7,600 Starbucks-operated U.S. locations redistribute it.
Other coffee companies like Peet’s and Seattle’s Best are expected to follow suit.
It’s American corporate responsibility at its best!
