Arby’s Raises $7.5 Million To Empower America’s Youth

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Arby’s Foundation today announced it raised $7.5 million this year
to support youth empowerment initiatives across America. The funds,
which set a new record for the Foundation, were raised at Arby’s
restaurant locations in the United States as well as through the
Foundation’s partner program.


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,” said Paul Brown, Chief Executive Officer
of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “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.

We believe every kid deserves to dream big and pursue their dreams with
confidence,” said Christopher Fuller, Executive Director of the Arby’s
Foundation. “Thanks to the generosity of the Arby’s family, our efforts
will have an immediate and lasting impact on millions of kids in
America.”
