Arby's Foundation gives record donation to battle childhood hunger, build dreams
The Arby's Foundation raised $7.5 million this year to support youth empowerment initiatives across America, a news release said. The funds will be used to support organizations that share the foundation's mission to help kids build, expand, and pursue their dreams. In order to achieve that mission, the foundation focuses its efforts on childhood hunger, youth leadership, and career readiness initiatives.
"It's our responsibility to support those who represent the future of our communities — our youth," CEO Paul Brown, said in the release. "I'm proud of the enormous response from our guests and team members who came together to support such an important cause."
A major beneficiary of the funds raised is Share our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry works to ensure that every child has access to healthy food where they live, learn, and play. Ending childhood hunger is one of three pillars of the foundation, and since 2011, Arby's has contributed nearly $30 million to hunger relief organizations across all 50 states.
