The impact we make on Dutch Luv Day is significant.

On Feb. 14, Dutch Bros. Coffee's company-wide food drive collected 487,966 pounds of nonperishable items for food banks across seven states, a 109 percent increase over last year’s total.

“Unbelievable,” said Dutch Bros. Coffee co-founder, Travis Boersma. “Once again, we’ve been blown away by the communities' support and willingness to make a difference.”

All 240 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations took part in serving their local communities that day by offering customers a drink special in exchange for nonperishable food donation. Some locations also had baristas volunteer at the food banks the week prior to the event.

“There's no better feeling than knowing we're making an impact in the lives of people within our very own community,” said Dutch Bros. Oroville franchisee, Bob Fulton. “This is Dutch Luv at its finest.”

“We raised enough for 136,685 meals for Phoenix families in need,” said Josh Hayes, Dutch Bros. Phoenix Regional Manager. “We are blown away and incredibly grateful.”
