“Take care of your customers and employees first, and the profits will follow.”
Although there is enough food produced to feed the population, 690 million people still go to bed on an empty stomach, according to the World Food Programme. In the U.S. alone, 35 million people struggle with hunger, including 10 million children and more than five million seniors, according to Feeding America.
Not having enough food leaves you running on empty to complete even the simplest of tasks, but Enterprise is here to help people fill their tank. In 2016 our Foundation launched one of the largest donations aimed at fighting hunger and has since contributed more than $50 million to address food insecurity in local communities.
In conjunction with the Enterprise ROAD Forward initiative, launched in 2020, the Foundation pledged an additional $65 million to Enterprise Fill Your Tank to address food insecurity – an issue that disproportionally affects people of color in our communities.
The gift not only helps fight hunger where it currently exists, but also helps our partners – Feeding America, Food Banks Canada, and The Global FoodBanking Network – build programs to serve growing food-insecure populations.
