The Human Bean Annual Food Drive

For the 13th Annual Food Drive, one dollar for every drink sold at all Human Bean locations 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 most 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. 

So, each Human Bean drive-thru across the U.S. will choose a local food bank to support with this year’s food drive! Check back here after the drive for an update on how much was raised — each year we have been able to raise more than the last, and we are excited to keep that tradition going on August 26th!

Adding a chocolate covered espresso bean to the top of every beverage is a symbol of how The Human Bean operates. We are thankful, so we want to say thank you.

We go above and beyond to give back to the people who have kept us in business for more than twenty years. We give each customer a sweet treat with every drink, and we also give back to our communities through quarterly fundraising campaigns and smaller local initiatives.

October is by far our biggest collective effort, through Coffee for a Cure. A system-wide day to have direct impact on local organizations providing for the treatment and care of women in our communities who are battling breast cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer in their lifetime. The impact we have on helping the fighters and families is immeasurable, and we couldn’t do it without you.
