Effective March 25, Food City Starbucks locations are offering first responders a free beverage.


“Two simple and powerful words: ‘Thank you.’ To me, that’s the drive behind this promo. Simply let our first responders know we appreciate them, especially during times like this,” said Tyler Bailey, Starbucks supervisor for Food City.

The promotion will run through April 30 and includes eligible items:

  • Free Tall (12 oz.) Brewed Coffee
  • Tall Iced Coffee
  • Tall Iced Coffee w/milk

There is a limit of one per day per ValuCard.

Eligible first responders for COVID-19 include:

  • police officers
  • firefighters
  • paramedics
  • doctors and nurses
  • hospital and medical staff
  • medical researchers
