BOISE, Idaho — Boise Rescue Mission Ministries is partnering with Dutch Bros Coffee to raise awareness and funds for hunger relief with their annual Dutch Luv Day on Valentine's Day.

“We are so very grateful for Dutch Bros Coffee and their on-going commitment to ending hunger in the lives of people here in our community,” says Rev. Bill Roscoe, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries President and CEO. “The Rescue Mission relies on this kind of generous support from partners like Dutch Bros Coffee to provide the more than 900 meals we serve each day to hungry men, women, and children across the Treasure Valley.”

Dutch Bros and its customers have supported organizations fighting food insecurity for 14 years now. Dutch Luv Day began as a canned food drive in 2007 and has since grown into an annual one-day fundraising event. With more than 360 locations in seven states, every dollar goes to an organization that addresses specific needs in the community. To date, Dutch Bros. has donated more than $1.1 million to hunger relief efforts.

“Valentine’s Day is all about love, and there’s no better way to share the Dutch Luv than to give back to organizations that are dedicated to defeating food insecurity in our communities,” said Keith Thomajan, chief of staff at Dutch Bros Coffee. “The collective impact we can make by working together is at the heart of our company and Dutch Luv Day.”

In 2019, Dutch Bros donated more than $350,000, providing more than one million meals for local communities. To find a Dutch Bros. location near you, click here.
