Starbucks FoodshareStarbucks Foodshare Donates Food From 190 Stores to Feeding America San Diego

Starbucks, Feeding America and Feeding America San Diego have announced the launch of the first Starbucks FoodShare program operations in the nation. Through a strategic partnership announced earlier this year, the Starbucks FoodShare program will donate nourishing, ready-to-eat meals to Feeding America member food banks from its company-operated stores in the U.S. Building on a successful pilot program launched in San Diego earlier this year, donations from 190 local Starbucks locations are estimated to provide 750,000 pounds of food, or the equivalent of 625,000 meals, in the San Diego area annually.

“Starbucks has truly shown their commitment to hunger-relief,” said Al Brislain, CEO of Feeding America San Diego. “With 1 in 8 San Diegans facing hunger, Starbucks FoodShare will make a huge difference for those we serve and exemplify what we can accomplish when we work together.”
