Every store is part of a community.

We are committed to being a good neighbor and a catalyst for change by bringing together our partners, our customers and their communities to take positive action around the world.

Coffee and Tea Communities

Road in forest

We are dedicated to supporting our origin communities. Our investment in Swastha supports the impactful work established by Tata. We also continue our work with the Community, Health and Advancement Initiative (CHAI)—a collaboration between the Starbucks Foundation, Tazo® Tea, Mercy Corps, Indian tea companies and origin communities in India and Guatemala.


CHAI Project

We’re inspiring partners (employees) and customers alike to get involved in their communities through local service programs. Our commitment to the areas around each of our stores brings people together to support local artists and local businesses.
