With autumn on the horizon (and the return of pumpkin-spice everything) customers at The Human Bean will find plenty of ways to feel the warmth of the season in August. Beginning on August 10th, fall drink specials are returning to drive-thrus across the U.S., and later in the month beverage-lovers will have a chance to give back to local food banks just by enjoying one. 

The Human Bean is hosting its 13th Annual Food Drive at all locations on Friday, August 26th. On this special day, one dollar for every drink sold will be donated to local food banks that support meal programs. On average, it takes $1 to provide three meals for those in need.

With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, many food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer.  The Human Bean recognizes this need and believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter the time of year. Each participating Human Bean location will choose a local food bank in their community to support.

“We hold our Annual Food Drive in mid-summer each year when food donations reach their annual lows,” said Dan Hawkins, CEO of The Human Bean. “There are many food drives during the holidays, but summer is when supplies run lowest and the need for families is high.” 

To channel the winter season ahead, The Human Bean is also releasing two new flavors and one customer-favorite comeback in August. This Wednesday, customers can order the first tastes of the Maple Brown Sugar Cinnamon Latte, the Sea Salt Caramel Granita, and the ever-popular Pumpkin Snowy — served hot, iced, blended, or in the coffee company’s famous cloud-light Cold Foam.
