Friends of Stirs
Here at Stir's, we care deeply about our community. Because of that, we have a 501c3 non-profit called Friends of Stirs. It is through Friends of Stirs that we help those with food insecurities by donating food to organizations who need it. In 2021 alone, Friends of Stirs was able to donate over 11,000 meals to those in need, thanks to the support of our customers. We are able to support multiple charities and organizations in our local community.

Eating cereal can be such a fun experience. We love giving out cereal to children who don't often get to enjoy a luxury like cereal. But we also want to provide nourishment to children in our community., That's why Friends of Stirs donates cereal along with healthy non-perishable goods, so that everyone can take part in the fun of the Stir's Experience, while also receiving good, healthy meals so they can live their lives without the fear of not having enough to eat.
