World Hunger Relief
Yum! Brands' annual World Hunger Relief campaign is the world's largest private sector hunger relief effort, spanning more than 130 countries and territories, approximately 40,000 KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants and nearly 1.5 million employees, to raise awareness, volunteerism and funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and other hunger relief agencies. Multi-Grammy Award winner and international superstar, Christina Aguilera, serves as the global spokesperson for World Hunger Relief.
Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide – greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment.
Consumers can visit FromHungertoHope.com or donate in the restaurants (no purchase necessary). Every U.S. dollar raised goes directly towards WFP's operations to fight hunger around the world. One U.S. dollar provides four meals for hungry children at school.
Since World Hunger Relief launched in 2007, more than one million of the Company’s employees, franchisees and their families have volunteered millions of hours to aid hunger relief efforts in communities worldwide. The effort has raised $115 million for WFP and other hunger relief organizations and is helping to provide 460 million meals and save the lives of millions of people in remote corners of the world.
