ABOUT SOLO SUPPORTS
America: Since 1936, we’ve been happy to serve you, through the good and bad, the monumental and mundane, the epic and ordinary. Now, through a new initiative called SOLO Supports, we’re exploring new ways to best serve you, beginning with a commitment to provide 1.5 million meals to those in need through Feeding America®.
America’s love for the SOLO brand has always given us a unique opportunity to bring people together, for big celebrations or simple weekday meals. Now, through our SOLO Supports initiative, we’re making it possible for the entire SOLO community to join forces for something even bigger: Making a positive impact on our communities and the world around us. And as we deal with an international health and economic crisis, coming together to care for others is more important than ever.
SOLO CAN REACH OUR COMMITMENT TO HELP PROVIDE
1.5 MILLION MEALS* MUCH FASTER THROUGH YOUR PARTICIPATION.
Why Feeding America?40 million Americans lack adequate food for a healthy lifestyle.
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Thanks to donations and support from businesses, government organizations and individuals like you, the Feeding America network of food banks, pantries and meal programs serve virtually every community in the United States — 40 million people, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.
The Feeding America network provides over 4.3 billion meals annually, helping 1 in 7 Americans facing hunger live more secure and stable lives. Of all proceeds donated to Feeding America, 98% goes directly into programs serving people in need.
We at SOLO are honored to support such an organization.
How You can help
For the first time in SOLO history, we’ve created apparel and lifestyle products available for purchase. Proceeds from these products — branded SOLO Supports — will benefit programs providing vital services to people across the U.S. For 2020, we’ve chosen Feeding America as SOLO Supports’ leading beneficiary, as we strive to provide immediate support for those facing hunger.
SOLO can reach our commitment to donate 1.5 million meals much faster through your participation. From June 1, 2020 to May 30, 2022, SOLO will donate 20% of each SOLO Supports sale to Feeding America, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $75,000 per year equating to at least $150,000 by the end of our two-year commitment.
Iconic designs, better together.
Most know us for the iconic red cup. But few know that the red cup is related to a certain purple-wave-sporting '90s cult favorite and a beloved New York City classic.
The Jazz design was originally submitted by a Sweetheart Company employee as part of an internal design contest for a new stock image. Little did she know that her design would go on to be printed on millions of cups around the world.Shop Jazz Gear
If you've ever stepped into a local bodega or visited a coffee cart in NYC, you've likely had a run-in with this cup. Originally created by Leslie Buck in 1963, its font is derived from ancient Athenian lettering, while the blue and white colors pay homage to the Greek flag.Shop Anthora Gear

The original red SOLO cup was first released in the '70s, becoming a fast favorite with families and businesses alike. Since then, SOLO has evolved to produce a full range of everyday and party supplies.Shop Red Cup Gear
