There’s magic in the act of giving, especially this time of year. A true joy that comes from sharing a little love to make a big difference in our community. The holidays are difficult for so many people across the country, especially those struggling with food insecurity. That’s why we’re excited to continue our partnership with Feeding America® to ensure all of our neighbors have the holiday they deserve.
The newest version of our special-edition Lyon blend, with artwork by Brooklyn-based artist Jordan Moss, is dedicated to nourishing our neighbors dealing with food insecurity. Each box is an opportunity to feed people who need it most. Every sip is a reminder of the impact we can make by embracing the magic of giving.
LA COLOMBE X FEEDING AMERICA
We know that a cup of coffee can go a long way. That’s why, as part of our partnership with Feeding America®, we’ll be launching a special-edition Lyon blend. $2 of each special-edition box sold, with a minimum and maximum donation of $150,000, will benefit their mission is to advance change in America by ensuring equitable access to nutritious food for all in partnership with food banks, policymakers, supporters and the communities we serve.
With 1 in 8 people expected to experience food insecurity this year, the pandemic has impacted people at risk more than we could imagine. But together and with the help of our friends at Feeding America, we can provide up to 20 meals* per box sold for those in need in our communities.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
