Darden's Citizenship Commitment: People

What We Do Starts With People 
We are a restaurant company, so food is always top of mind. But what we do starts with people: our 150,000 employees, the nearly one million guests we serve each day and the individuals who live in the communities that are home to our restaurants. We know that if we don’t contribute to the success and well-being of the people whose lives we touch, our business won’t continue to thrive – no matter how good the food.
That’s why we work every day to provide meaningful and rewarding employment, deliver outstanding service and food to our guests and give back to our local communities.

On November 17, severe storms and more than 50 tornadoes impacted Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky.

#DardenDigest: Culinary Training for Culinary Educators
