Los Angeles, California (October 17, 2017) – Hurricane Harvey devastated Southern Texas, especially Houston, but it also showed the power of humanity and how people come together to help others during times of need. To do their part, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf along with Global Freight Solutions – a leading shipping and logistics company – teamed up to donate 59,000 muffins to the Houston Food Bank.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has a longstanding tradition of inspiring a world of caring through their Caring Cup social responsibility program. From the communities where their ingredients are grown to the local communities they serve, their Caring Cup initiatives look to improve lives seed to cup.

With headquarters in Los Angeles, California, the challenge was for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to get 26 pallets of blueberry and chocolate muffins to Houston, Texas. Given the extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey making transportation more difficult, and the need to move quickly, Global Freight Solutions (GFS) stepped up to the plate.

With over one billion tons of goods moved ranging from food service distribution and renewable energy to dry goods, GFS is covering all of the transportation costs for this refrigerated food grade shipment from Los Angeles to Houston.
