Starbucks Finally Starts to Donate its FOod

Food banks and shelters don’t always want or need what you have. Cecil Rodriguez, the executive chef at Beef & Barley in Chicago, says that he works with a local shelter to make sure food doesn’t go to waste, but in the beginning, it wasn’t always so easy. 

“There were times I tried to donate large quantities of bread to a shelter, but they could not take it because the majority of donations from restaurants are bread and they just don’t have enough room for it,” he says.
