KFC Nassau Continues Commitment To Fight Hunger

KFC Nassau began its annual quest toward alleviating hunger and poverty in The Bahamas with the launch of KFC parent company Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief (WHR) campaign.

This global charitable cause, which helps raise awareness and funds to aid the growing hunger crisis, helps to feed more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries worldwide through local hunger relief agencies, such as Hands for Hunger in The Bahamas.

With the a lack of available food, and a risk of starvation still being a silent, yet major epidemic in many countries, including The Bahamas, KFC Nassau joins the fight in helping to reverse this trend.

From November 4th through December 15th, consumers can join KFC Nassau in the fight against hunger by making a charitable donation while visiting any of KFC’s nine locations in New Providence.

“We’re proud to support this year’s World Hunger Relief initiative as there are still many within our community struggling with food insecurity, which at times goes unnoticed,” said Gabriel Sastre, Vice President and General Manager of Restaurants (Bahamas) Ltd., the KFC franchise holder in Nassau.

“It’s imperative that we continue to support charities that fight hunger in The Bahamas, and to help create a change throughout the world.”

Half of all funds raised through the KFC Nassau and World Hunger Relief initiative will stay in The Bahamas and go directly to providing much needed food resources to people in The Bahamas affected by this epidemic through Hands for Hunger.

Hands for Hunger is one of the premier food relief agencies in the Bahamas, and works year round to improve the lives of many in the community that lack access to nutritional meals on a daily basis.

The other half of the funds raised are sent to the United Nations’ World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger. The WFP works to help people who are unable to produce or obtain enough food for themselves and their families.

“Through this initiative, we have the chance to help achieve success and alleviate the risk of hunger. We’re encouraging the public and our team members to join us and contribute generously to help those affected most in our community,” Ms. Sastre added.
