Nourish Program

We’re intent on nurturing our communities, as well as our people, to the best of our ability. Our Nourish Program, which takes excess food from our restaurants to local non-profits, donated more than 662,000 pounds of food in 2021. These donations also reduced more than 3 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). As of 2021, the program has supported more than 500 non-profits and food banks in our local communities.
