Dunkin’ Donuts has announced its newest partnership with star Miami Heat player, Duncan Robinson. For every three-pointer Robinson scores during the NBA season, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate three pounds of coffee to Miami’s local food bank, Feeding South Florida.
The Miami Heat’s season kicked off this week, marking a fresh start for the Miami Heat which will hopefully lead to victory. Shooting guard and forward, Duncan Robinson, has been hailed as one of the best three-point shooters in the league over the past two seasons and hopes to use his talents to increase resources for local food banks.
“I’m thrilled to join Dunkin’ in this partnership to give back to Feeding South Florida while doing what I love. My goal is to try and surpass last season’s totals to help benefit food-insecure families in South Florida,” said Robinson.
Feeding South Florida is the largest food bank in the area, serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. They support nearly 25% of the state’s food insecure population, aiming to end hunger in the Miami area and provide families with quality, nutritious foods. In 2020, Feeding South Florida efforts distributed over 176 million pounds of food to over one million people.
For many people who struggle to make ends meet, the decision of whether to buy Coffee or not is a difficult one. Dunkin’ Donut’s new partnership with Feeding South Florida is an effort to provide coffee for food-insecure families across South Florida.
With over 12,000 restaurants in 40 countries worldwide, Dunkin Donut’s is setting an example for other large coffee and fast-food chains to follow suit and give back to the community. Their new partnership with Robinson is an effort to raise awareness for the problem of food insecurity locally in Miami and across America.
