Taco Bell® And The Taco Bell Foundation For Teens™ Launch Effort To Help End World Hunger

Stocks in this article: YUM

Taco Bell® and the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens™ – which seeks to inspire and enable America’s teens to graduate from high school – has announced that its seventh year of World Hunger Relief (WHR) efforts will focus on teens around the world.

Taco Bell’s support of Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief – which provides youth with meals in school – will focus on teens worldwide in an effort to keep them both nourished and educated. The Foundation’s support has inspired the lives of more than one million teens in the U.S. and now, Taco Bell will not only support the education of teens overseas, but also ensure they get a nutritious meal while at school.

To join the worldwide cause, the brand is encouraging all employees and the approximately 36 million consumers that visit Taco Bell restaurants each week to donate $1 to WHR from Sept. 26 to Oct. 17. Those donations – with every cent going to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – help build sustainable farms in local economies by producing and purchasing wheat, maize, rice and blended foods that then are delivered as meals to hungry youth. @TacoBell demonstrated this process and how $1 feeds four meals through Vine today: https://vine.co/v/hgzF0qALJX5.

“After witnessing first-hand the number of teens that would have gone to bed hungry at night without meals from the World Food Programme, we deeply understood the incredible impact that World Hunger Relief provides and were inspired to do more,” said Amy Kavanaugh, executive director of the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens and vice president, public affairs and engagement, Taco Bell Corp. “We are extending Taco Bell’s ongoing commitment to teens here in the U.S. and the opportunities that education provides globally. We want young adults everywhere to wake up each day with the concentration and energy to continue playing and learning. The brand and our fans truly have an opportunity to change lives forever and help end the vicious cycle of poverty.”
