Noey Lopez, president of Starbucks Philippines, stated, "Much of the transformative work on our battle against hunger is possible thanks to the support of The Starbucks Foundation, and dedication of our community impact partners." "We are appreciative of all the organizations that support the execution of our programs to combat hunger. As we mark our 25th anniversary in the Philippines, we aim to engage more people by growing our social impact initiatives.

Kusina ng Kalinga of Gawad Kalinga is fighting child hunger.

The Starbucks Foundation gave Gawad Kalinga a USD$50,000 Global Community Impact Grant in April 2022 to help with the Kusina ng Kalinga food donation program, benefiting over 600 children. Within 95 days, the program hopes to get kids back to eating right.

Since July 2022, the Kusina ng Kalinga program has been operating in Gawad Kalinga communities in Toyota, Sta. Rosa Laguna, and Tribuin, Batasan Hills. Starbucks Philippines partners (workers) will volunteer with the community kitchens to assist with food preparation and distribution, and Starbucks Philippines' additional grant will help the Kusina ng Kalinga program reach more children and families.

Assisting underserved communities through Starbucks FoodShare

Through its collaboration with the Philippine FoodBank Foundation and Grab, Starbucks Philippines is the first market in Southeast Asia to test the Starbucks FoodShare food donation program. Since January 2022, participating Starbucks locations have partnered with Grab drivers to collect and deliver daily food donations that have been expertly prepared by partners to the Philippine FoodBank Foundation. Donations are then given to communities in Metro Manila that require food assistance via the food bank.

Nearly 200,000 food packages have been given away by the corporation to underserved communities since the program's debut in January 2022.

Starbucks will carry out significant social action to support local communities in the Philippines as it celebrates its 25th year of fostering connections through coffee.
