Kraft Foods has partnered with Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief charity, for nearly three decades. The company has provided more than one billion meals to those in need. Through the Five Guys/KRAFT American Cheese Cheeseburger Check-In promotion, Kraft plans to donate another 100,000 meals.

Calling All Cheeseburger Fans: Check-In for CharityFive Guys and KRAFT American Cheese slices are the perfect combination to commemorate the classic American food holiday, National Cheeseburger Day. Five Guys is known for its fresh, juicy burgers, wide variety of toppings and using the best burger-making ingredients, which is why it chooses KRAFT American Cheese.

"Since we first opened our doors in 1986, we've paired our burgers with KRAFT American Cheese slices for their creamy melt and mild taste," says Molly Catalano, director of communications, Five Guys. "We're pleased to team up with Kraft Cheese on another delicious venture – the cheeseburger check-in – in support of a great cause."

America's Love Affair with CheeseburgersThe cheeseburger has come a long way since its storied inception in 1924 when Lionel Clark Strenberger experimentally topped a hamburger with a slice of American cheese at his father's sandwich shop. ii Americans have been topping their burgers with individually-wrapped slices for nearly 50 years, after KRAFT Singles were introduced nationally in 1965. Today, the cheeseburger has become one of America's favorite foods, enjoyed in the U.S. approximately 900 million times per week. iii
