Starbucks to Give Free Coffee or Tea

Starbucks is offering free coffee to frontline responders and health care workers through May 3. Many Safeway stores have a Starbucks location and those locations are open during this crisis.

Any customer who identifies as a frontline responder to the COVID-19 pandemic will receive a tall brewed coffee or tea (hot or iced) at no charge.

The offer is for police officers, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, nurses, hospital and medical staff as well as medical researchers.

The Starbucks cafes located inside Safeway stores are open from 7 am to 6 pm.

This is a wonderful way that Starbucks is showing gratitude for those first responders in this time of need when they are burning the midnite oil to keep our communities safe.

Starbucks Foundation Donations

In addition to free coffee, the Starbucks Foundation is also giving donating to two organizations helping support frontline responders.

Starbucks says $250,000 will go to Operation Gratitude, an organization working to deliver 50,000 care packages to healthcare workers.

Additionally, another $250,000 will go to Direct Relief, an organization supporting the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items.
