In a new program which they call FoodShare, Starbucks teams up with Food Donation Connection and Feeding America to donate all of its food that it doesn’t sell to food banks. Starbucks claims that by the end of its first year in the program they will donate approximately 5 million meals. That’s a lot of meals!

More than 7,000 branches across the US will be involved in the program. Food Donation Connection and Feeding America will pick up unsold food from these Starbucks and redistribute them.

Incredible! We hope many other food chains follow in their footsteps and help feed the needy. Why throw away food when there are so many people who are going hungry on the streets.
