Starbucks To Begin Donating All Unsold Food To The Needy
March 29, 2016
Starbucks is teaming up with the Food Donation Connection and Feeding America in a program known as FoodShare that will allow the coffeehouse chain to donate all of its leftover prepared meals to food banks.
With this program FDC and Feeding America will pick up the food at more than 7,000 Starbucks-operated U.S. locations and redistribute it.

"The challenge was finding a way to preserve the food's quality during delivery," Brand manager for the Starbucks food team Jane Maly said in a press release. "We focused on maintaining the temperature, texture and flavor of the surplus food, so when it reached a person in need, they could safely enjoy it."
Starbucks estimates that they will be able to donate almost 5 million meals at the end of its first year in the program.
