Our World Hunger Relief (WHR) program is the largest private sector hunger relief effort, spanning more than 125 countries and territories, 40,000 KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants and more than 1.5 million employees and franchise associates.

2013 WHR efforts created unprecedented awareness and engagement and raised a record-breaking $37 million in overall cash and food donations for WFP and other hunger relief agencies.

WHR was recently recognized with top honors for Corporate Social Responsibility at the 2014 SABRE Awards. The SABRE Awards are among the most prestigious in the public relations industry and recognize top-notch creativity, integrity and effectiveness.
