Over the past year, Starbucks has done everything in their power to give back to the people that have given so much to them.
Their first cool initiative was the free college tuition program to workers. If that wasn't cool enough, they shocked the world by stating that it will aim to contribute "100%" of its leftover food from its 7,000-plus U.S. locations by this time next year.
This will be made possible due to a new partnership with Feeding America, which has a national network of food banks.
"Our people just felt so badly. And this has been going on for quite some time. And so we started doing our homework-- municipality by municipality," Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said in an interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow.
No one wants to see anyone go hungry. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 30% to 40% of America's food supply is wasted.
This is a step in the right direction. It's great to see this company place hunger as an issue in their company.
Their items are high priced, but things like this will make me open my wallet with ease next time I enter Starbucks.
