Community

From the neighborhoods where our stores are located to those where our coffee is grown, we are committed to making our communities stronger.

Bringing people together, inspiring change and making a difference in people's lives – it's all part of being a good neighbor. And it's a commitment rooted in the belief that we can balance profitability and a social conscience.

  1. Community Service

    More than ever, communities are looking to the private sector to share resources and create meaningful change. We’re tapping into a passionate network of people eager to be catalysts in their local neighborhoods.

  2. Community Stores

    Aside from extraordinary coffee, Starbucks has made a business out of human connections, community involvement and the celebration of cultures. We are as diverse as the communities we serve.
