CB2's 500,000 meal drive

CB2 is proud to continue the fight against childhood hunger this holiday season in partnership with Share Our Strength.

Starting today, every interaction with CB2* will generate a donation to a meal to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign—with a goal of providing access to 500,000 meals for children in need.

Every time someone visits, likes, tweets, tags, pins, submits a review, signs up to receive emails—or makes a purchase—CB2 will donate a meal.

A counter will appear on our home page which will be updated daily to see how we’re progressing toward the goal—every single possible interaction counts!

For every tweet, like, pin, email sign-up, visit, review or purchase, CB2 will donate 10 cens to Share Our Strength, up to a maximum of $50,000. Through Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campagin, 10 cents can provide a child facing hunger access to 1 meal. The amount is based on the individual experiences of Share Our Strength’s grant recipients and is provided to illustrate how community investments can be used to end childhood hunger. Share Our Strength is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
For more information, contact Share Our Strength at nokidhungry.com, 1730 M Street NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC 20036 or by phone at 800.969.4767. New York residents also may request more information from the New York Charities Bureau, 120 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10271.
*unfortunately, due to cyber-logistic issues, this year we’re unable to include CB2 stores in Canada.

"can do" food drive 2010

can do food drive, 2009

One of CB2’s core values is to work with local organizations that make a difference in our neighborhoods—specifically nonprofit groups that provide food and shelter to those in need.

Our annual “can do” food drive is a Thanksgiving-time tradition which warms our hearts. This year it seems more important, necessary, and valuable than ever. So from November 8th-24th, in-store customers are welcome to bring in 7 non-perishable items and receive a 15% discount on any purchase, for details see the “fine print” below.

We love sharing the thrill of giving by dedicating our store windows to the donations, so watch for them once again and join in the fun. A reminder, food stuffs collected will go directly to each local food bank. Following is information about each organization—all of which were chosen as a partner by their local CB2 store.
