About World Hunger Relief

World Hunger Relief supports the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and other hunger relief agencies. More than 36,000 company and franchised restaurants located in more than 110 countries will be participating, including Pizza Hut and other Yum! Brands, KFC, Taco Bell, Long John Silver's, and A&W All-American Food.

Funds raised for WFP go directly to the areas of greatest need, feeding poor school children in the developing world and helping villages become self-sustainable. Yum! Brands' employees and franchisees will be volunteering their time at hunger relief agencies, food banks, soup kitchens and launching fundraisers.

During the 2009 World Hunger Relief campaign, Yum! Brands plan to work towards a pledge made at the Clinton Global Initiative last year. At the Clinton Global Initiative, Yum! Brands pledged to do the following in the coming years: raise and donate at least $80 million to help WFP and others provide 200 million meals for hungry school children in developing countries; donate 20 million hours of hunger relief volunteer service in the communities in which it operates; donate $200 million worth of its prepared food to hunger agencies in the United States; and use the company's marketing clout to generate awareness of the hunger problem while convincing others to become part of the solution.

Yum! Brands has been committed to fighting hunger for more than a decade by donating more than $46 million of prepared food annually to the underprivileged in the United States. Since the company went public in 1997, it has donated more than $550 million of its food to hunger relief agencies in the U.S.
