Coffee giant Starbucks wants to donate all of its leftover food to people in need. And by all, we mean 100 percent — every single unused food item from all 7,600 U.S. stores.
Starbucks already donates all of its unsold pastries, but CEO Howard Schultz says expanding the generosity to perishable food items took some planning.
"There are a lot of regulations, and I would say for the right reasons because the municipalities are just trying to make sure the food is safe to eat," Schultz told CNN.
