On Friday, August 18, with the generous support of their customers, Human Bean Northern Colorado raised $5,400 for local food banks. One dollar from every drink sold at any Human Bean Northern Colorado location was donated to help the fight against food insecurity. Proceeds were distributed between the Food Bank for Larimer County, Windsor Severance Food Pantry, and Weld Food Bank. On September 15, 2023, a check for $1,800 was presented to each nonprofit.

“As a local business, it’s important for us to be aware and recognize the needs of the community,” said Owner of Human Bean Northern Colorado, Frank Sherman. “Being able to bring those needs to the forefront and find a way to help is a privilege.”
