Dutch Bros. Coffee hosts food drive on Valentine’s Day

 Dutch Bros. Coffee shops in Spokane and Coeur D’Alene are offering free drinks on Valentine’s Day in exchange for donations of nonperishable food items for local food banks.

Customers who bring three nonperishable food items will receive a free medium drink. Customers who bring five items will receive a free large.

The promotion is part of Dutch Luv Day, an annual event in which Dutch Bros. partners with local food banks in seven states.

Spokane locations, locally owned by Kevin and Kerry Parker, will donate to Second Harvest Food Bank.

Coeur D’Alene locations, locally owned by Jeff and Brandi Buller, will donate to Community Action Partnership Food Bank.

“It’s our privilege to use Dutch Bros. as a force for good and help feed local families,” Dutch Bros. Coffee Co-Founder Travis Boersma said in a news release about the event.

Last year’s Dutch Luv Day yielded 7,504 pounds of canned food locally and 205,322 pounds company-wide.

Dutch Bros. Coffee is headquartered in Grants Pass, Ore. It’s the country’s largest privately held, drive-through coffee company, with more than 200 locations and 2,000 employees in seven states.
