2015 Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief: #FeedTheWorld

According to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), there are 795 million people around the world who suffer from chronic hunger. Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort is the world’s largest private sector hunger relief initiative spanning more than 125 countries, over 41,000 KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants and 1.5 million associates. The initiative began in 2007 in an effort to raise awareness, volunteerism and funds for the WFP and other hunger relief agencies. Multi-Grammy award winner and international superstar, Christina Aguilera has served as a volunteer spokesperson for World Hunger Relief since 2009 where her participation has helped raise millions for WFP and other hunger relief agencies. Since 2007, Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort has raised more than $600 million for WFP and other hunger relief organizations and provided 2.4 billion nutritious meals for those in need. Every U.S. dollar raised goes directly toward WFP’s operations to fight hunger worldwide, mostly to disaster relief and school meals programs. Just one U.S. dollar provides meals to four hungry children at school. Consumers can visit HungertoHope.com to make a donation or donate in KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants worldwide.
