The holiday season is a time for reflection and gratitude, but it’s also a time for giving back – and never has giving back been more important than now. So this holiday season, for every limited-edition ‘Guinness Gives Back’ 8-pack made, we are donating $1* to a charitable organization in the U.S. to help support those who have long supported us.

Contributions from our limited-edition ‘Guinness Gives Back’ packs will specifically benefit:

In California, we’ve done an amazing job getting a handle on COVID-19, but economic and food hardship are still very real problems disrupting the lives of millions in our state. Even before the pandemic, as many as 1 in 8 families struggled to put food on the table. Today, it’s as many as 1 in 5 and even higher in some communities. California Association of Food Banks has been working hard to meet the needs of our neighbors through the long-haul recovery by supporting our 41 member food banks and securing the essential public benefits that help people get the nourishment they need. Last year, we held the line against a full-blown starvation crisis only through the massive outpouring of support from government programs and a compassionate community that gives back. Together, we continue to meet this moment and work toward a resilient and hunger-free future for all Californians. Learn more at
