Starbucks Food Share Program Benefits LUM

LUM Students, Clients and Guests Enjoy Starbucks

The newest Starbucks in Tippecanoe County (2718 US-52, West Lafayette, IN) has selected Lafayette Urban Ministry as their food share recipient. Starbucks is committed to hunger relief through their national-wide food share program. At the end of each day, Starbucks partners collect surplus pastries and fresh food to donate to agencies like LUM. {Pictured with part of this week’s donation are Starbucks partners Bayleigh, Ava & Sarah Beth.}

These food items are a blessing to LUM. LUM program directors have been using these items as snacks for the After School Program students, as meals at the Emergency Shelter, and as a choice for the Food Pantry clients. So far, there has been zero food waste — ALL of the food items have been given to LUM students, clients or guests.

Next time you visit this West Lafayette Starbucks, say THANKS for LUM.
