Visionary Partner

Starbucks’ mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit—one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.

Since 2016, Starbucks has been committed to the fight against hunger through its innovative FoodShare program in partnership with Feeding America to help provide more than 27 million nourishing, ready-to-eat meals* to Feeding America member food banks across the U.S. In 2021, Starbucks is proud to reach an important milestone: launching FoodShare in all U.S. company-operated stores and celebrating five years of the program. 

Also in 2021, Starbucks is donating $1.7 million in new equitable food access grants to Feeding America member food banks to help increase access to nutritious food among households with individuals who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color residing in communities experiencing high food insecurity rates. This investment builds on the $2.69 million that Starbucks invested in food bank mobile pantry programs since 2019.
