Each day, 35 million Americans are at risk of hunger . . . 73 percent of restaurants donate food to individuals or charities.

The National Restaurant Association has partnered with Food Donation Connection (“FDC”) to strengthen this effort – providing an alternative to discarding surplus food, while capitalizing on the economic benefits of those donations through the tax savings. Since 1992, FDC has helped facilitate the donation of over 210 million pounds of non-profit, hunger-relief agencies.
