Over the years, Yum! has made big and small steps to advance our sustainability journey. Even now during this challenging time, our food donation program Harvest is reducing greenhouse gas emissions by keeping leftover food out of landfills. The surplus meals are being donated to food banks, soup kitchens and other nonprofits to feed people in communities around the world. Since 1992, the Harvest program has donated 190 million-plus lbs. of food. Happy Earth Day!
