Last Sunday, I shared our "Call for Unity" and committed that Yum! Brands will invest more time, talent and resources to be a greater force for positive change and equality — for restaurant employees and in the communities where we operate alongside our franchisees. Open and honest conversations across our company and with our franchisees are making it clear that we must now take action to help break down the systemic issues of inequality and racism.
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!

The brand's first vegetarian menu, increased Live Más Scholarship funding and improved packaging recyclability are just a few ways Taco Bell is delivering on purpose
IRVINE, Calif., January 16, 2019 /3BL Media/ – This New Year, millions of Americans have once again committed to a fresh batch of resolutions, though it is statistically proven that most will not stick for more than a couple of weeks. While that fall-off is currently beginning for many, Taco Bell is announcing its set of New Year’s “commitments” that the brand will follow through on in 2019, and beyond.
Taco Bell is well ahead of its commitment to award $10 million in Live Más Scholarships by 2020. Three years to be exact. But instead of simply celebrating the fact, the YUM! Brands chain decided to more than double that commitment to $21 million by 2021.
