Biggby Coffee’s New Initiative Expands Fight Against Hunger

    Industry News | February 19, 2019

    As Biggby Coffee’s second food bank initiative begins in Biggby Coffee locations throughout the nation, Biggby Coffee looks forward to the opportunity to provide meals to those in need and continue the efforts they started in 2017 as they work toward brewing change in their communities.

    With a purpose that they exist to help support people in building lives they love, Biggby Coffee takes seriously that there are people in all communities that go without each day. In an effort to contribute to this need, Biggby Coffee developed the food bank initiative as a way to brew up change throughout the communities their Biggby Coffee locations live in. While the food bank initiative lasts one week, there is a large opportunity to fight hunger at an exponential rate during this time. In 2017, Biggby Coffee locations across the United States donated over $29,000 to local food banks. 

    During this time, stores are also encouraged to pair this initiative with toiletry drives and volunteering at the food banks they are supporting. Not only does this fulfill a need for volunteers but it allows Biggby Coffee employees the opportunity to bond together while getting to know the ones they’re helping. 

    The 2019 food bank initiative takes it one step further with their partnership with This Bar Saves Lives. Through this partnership, Biggby Coffee has helped provide life-saving nutrition to children in Haiti and parts of Africa, making their initiative a global effort.

    On a more localized effort, the Biggby Coffee Home Office has been known to donate and volunteer time to local food banks with their Give BIGG team, a group of Home Office employees that dedicate time each week to volunteer for the local East Lansing community.
