Community: Creating Pathways to Opportunity

From the neighborhoods where our stores are located to those where our coffee is grown, we are committed to creating and investing in opportunities for people around the world.

Bringing people together, helping provide education and employment opportunities and making a difference in
people's lives – it's all part of being a good neighbor and a sustainable company. Starbucks, even as a public company, has always believed that we can balance profitability and a social conscience.
