The homeless are the best fed! Sick of people sayjng ‘should be given to the homeless’ NO! Should be given to the person whos been working 24/7 to earn a living and still struggling to feed their family! Should be given to that married couple who have lost their jobs and only getting £70 a week to survive from the DWP and racking up thousands of pounds of debt in the mean time! Sick of hearing about the homeless!
All stores should do this or at least give it to the homeless. My local ASDA/TESCO have sandwiches for like 15p and if they don't sell they go in the bin which could go to those people on the streets. I appreciate this post and think it could be more

Not bad, a cheese a onion Panini will only be twice the price of everywhere instead of four times. Kidding, great deal and nice to see Starbucks doing something decent, even if it is a PR stunt.

Not Tesco, all Tesco stores give their waste best before (not use by) food to local charities or homeless shelters, they've been doing this for over 6 months. They're supposed to also have a sign or board somewhere in the store with information on how much food was donated.

My local doesn't, the lady told me it all goes in the bin, good on the others though but a lot of stores do throw their food out. That really needs to change, why does it need to be thrown out when people are living on the street and not because they chose it.

More likely its the cost to redistribute it. Throwing stuff in the bin is probably cheaper.
Is this ongoing?

'my local' - where? 'The Lady' - who? If you want to make claims at least make them verifiable. This sort of post is all that is wrong with the internet encapsulated in one submission.

Check out the link I posted above, it's so easy for them, they notify the local charities of food available via an app and then the charities collect. Not hard really.

Probably the store manager can verify about food waste?
Is it a big tesco or tesco express?

(I think it's great that you care about food waste and needy people, I mean it )

I've been to my local in the evening and seen staff going round with a bin bag chucking stuff :-/
my son works in leeds starbucks - all food is binned but also they must unwrap the bin sandwiches to deter folk from bin surfing them. many city centre starbucks are sol coffee franchises and i notice those aren’t participating but the only way to change things is for customers to put pressure on management/board members. if we as customers knew the half of what these big businesses got up to they’d be uproar but they keep it all hush

I asked in my local Sainsbury’s and all the fruit and veg goes to the local animal park was so glad to know it doesn’t go in the bin x

I’ve seen that as well my husband and me just lost our jobs and they were walking around with two big clear bags full to the top of food and I asked what are you doing with that stuff and he said putting it in the bin I asked if if was all out of date but no not out of date yet I live of food that is reduced so I can get fruit and veg into my kids and some organic stuff. I never thought about it when I was working now I has a stroke my fridge is empty x
My local is not doing this pity it is a very expensive place to live so I’m guessing that is why as the rent will cost them a fortune I don’t know
None of the branches in Cambridge do that, what a pity...

You're quite the benevolent type, aren't you? Not at all judgmental.

How do you know the circumstances by which someone has become homeless? Do you think it's a possibility that perhaps they ended up on a slope you're describing above?
Just a thought, but maybe if Starbucks had always paid their corporation tax, what they give back to the country would far outstrip what they're doing here by way of a shameless publicity stunt for advertising purposes.

Why blame Starbucks? Every large corporation is doing the same. Blame the system for allowing it to happen, they didn't break any laws!

Yeah, just jump on the bandwagon that avoiding taxation is strictly not illegal therefore ok, despite being morally bankrupt, with the government supposedly doing everything to allow it to continue.

Do you think share holders give two hoots about morals? With my own business I pay an accountant very well to get my liabilities down as much as possible. I am sure Paul Nikkel who owns this site and quidco etc does the same too .. if you were a family earning £50k a year and claiming child tax credits like your entitled to, do you think that's morally correct? After all they don't need it and the money could be spent on better things? My own mother in law is disabled and the government provides her with a car, she uses it once a fortnight to do her shopping, the last one she got had done only 522 miles in 3 years, clearly it would be cheaper to get a taxi once a fortnight, is that morally right? You can attack and find faults with every sector, I don't blame Starbucks, I blame the system.

Infact the biggest tax evaders are Google, Apple, Microsoft, IKEA and Amazon, so I hope you don't use any of theirs products or services? Because that would be morally wrong

I don't give two hoots about shareholders. I feel strongly that as part of a society founded on a general principle of benevolence and caring for others, that companies and those who avoid (note wording) paying tax should be more stringently controlled and taken Tuesday m to task. I believe in giving back. People like you, clearly don't. Different strokes.
Can't stand Starbucks, tax thieving b......d!.

I think I will still be going to my local Boots who do thier sandwiches and salads at 50p at the end of the day.

How ironic, you criticize Starbucks for tax avoidance and then praise your 'local' boots which is one of the biggest tax avoiders there is!!!
