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.

In Miami-Dade County, College Summit partners with 11 of the most challenging schools in the poorest communities. This is intentional. Only 10 percent of low-income students are currently getting college degrees, versus 70...

Darden Digest: Giving Thanks on Labor Day
For many people, Labor Day weekend is a time for sharing moments with families and friends, enjoying some extra time away from work, planning outdoor activities and celebrating another end of summer. It's a holiday most people take for granted, but for the men and women who serve and protect our local communities, Labor Day is just another day at the office, when they remain on the clock,...
