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 contributed to the fight against hunger with the Starbucks FoodShare program in partnership with Feeding America. To date, more than 23 million meals have been donated to people in need at the Feeding America network of member food banks.  

Starbucks has also increased its commitment to ending hunger, particularly among children and families, by investing $2.69 million in food bank mobile pantry programs across the country since 2019. Funding helps to support infrastructure and capacity for mobile food programs. In response to COVID-19, The Starbucks Foundation donated $1 million to Feeding America to help people facing hunger.
