  • Starbucks offering free coffee to law enforcement first responders and health care workers

Starbucks may have drastically modified service in response to the coronavirus outbreak, but its operational locations are still hoping to fuel front-line responders.

Starbucks announced Wednesday it will offer free coffee to workers on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak, including law enforcement and first responders.

The workers are eligible to receive a free tall-sized hot or iced coffee from Wednesday through May 3.

The Starbucks Foundation will also donate $500,000 to support frontline responders with equal donations to Direct Relief to support the delivery of personal protective equipment and essential medical items and to Operation Gratitude to deliver 50,000 care packages and handwritten letters to first responders and health care workers.
