About The Arby's Foundation

We help kids achieve their dreams by supporting childhood hunger, youth leadership and career readiness initiatives.

History

The Arby’s Foundation was founded in 1986 as a way for Arby’s to give back to the communities we serve. For 30 years, we've donated over $80 million to various youth related causes across all 50 states. From 2011 until 2017 the Foundation focused its efforts on ending childhood hunger in America, contributing over $25 million to hunger relief organizations. In 2017, the Foundation expanded its work to include youth leadership and career readiness initiatives.
