There are alot of people going hungry in our city where nearly 30% of our children live in poverty.
When I owned my restaurant I always wondered why there wasn't a service that took all our left over food "waste" (ie perfectly good food we didn't sell) and brought the meals to families around the city to eat the next day.
In the US, there is such a program and they've teamed up with Starbucks to make it happen! Hopefully we'll see more of this in the future, with restaurants getting tax breaks for donating meals at the end of the night!
If you’ve ever wondered where all those Starbucks bagels and bistro boxes go after closing time, here's an answer you can get behind.
Starbucks has pledged to donate 100% of its leftover food through a new program called FoodShare, the company announced in a release on Tuesday. Starbucks created the initiative in partnership with nonprofit organizationFeeding America and food collection group Food Donation Connection, and it will allow the company to donate perishable, ready-to-eat meals from its 7,600 stores to food banks nationwide.
