We hosted a food drive all month long in August to re-stock local food pantries when they are often at their lowest supply.¬† For every $20 donation you gave we gave away a free 20 oz. drink coupon.¬† For every $10 donation we gave away a Buy One Get One Free drink coupon.¬† We also gave away our popular reusable bags on August 24th to anyone who gave a non-perishable food item donation or a cash donation to the food drive.¬† One bag per customer and two per car while supplies lasted and only at participating locations.
We have hosted our annual summer food drive every year now for nine years.¬† With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer.¬† The Human Bean believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter what time of the year.¬† Each year The Human Bean food drive grows and raises more donations than previous years. This year in Jackson County alone we were able to give 836 pounds of food and $2,000 to Access Food Bank.¬† Access said they will be able to purchase 10,000 pounds of food with the $2,000!
Thanks to customer support, The Human Bean raises thousands of pounds of food to donate each year and we hope to make an even bigger difference this year.
