According to NPR, up to 10 percent of the food that restaurants buy ends up going to waste. Starbucks is just one of many chains, like Chipotle, Chik-fil-A, Olive Garden, and Pizza Hut, working with Food Donation Connection to deliver their leftovers to those in need.
The initiative, called FoodShare, is a collaboration between Starbucks and the organizations Food Donation Connection (FDC) and Feeding America. At the end of each day, representatives from FDC will visit 7600 Starbucks locations across America and pick up whatever food wasn’t sold; from there it will be handed off to Feeding America, who will distribute the meals to food banks.
