Corporate Responsibility

Arby’s® restaurants are dedicated to making a difference in all of the communities that we serve. We invite you to check out the sections below to learn more about how we step up to the plate and do our best for our customers, our communities and our environment.

Community Involvement

Since 1986, the Arby’s Foundation has been doing good work in the communities we serve every day. As the charitable giving arm of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., the Arby’s Foundation works to end childhood hunger in America with the vision that all children have access to the wholesome food choices they need to learn, play and grow.

Beginning in 2011, the Arby’s Foundation has been a national charity partner of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign (NKH). As NKH’s largest quick service restaurant partner, the Arby’s Foundation has raised over $5 million in the past two years to support NKH and other hunger-fighting organizations in the communities that Arby’s serves.

With the support and commitment of the entire Arby’s® system, our charity partners, and our generous customers, we know that fighting childhood hunger is a winnable battle.

Animal Welfare

At Arby’s, we strongly believe that it’s our responsibility to provide our guests with high quality, wholesome and safe food. As part of this pledge, we believe in the humane treatment of animals.

Because the welfare of animals is important to us, we require our suppliers to follow strict policies when it comes to the humane treatment of animals. The companies who raise, transport and process animals for Arby’s demonstrate the highest commitment to quality practices each and every day.

Our suppliers are evaluated by a third-party auditor, as well as an Arby’s-certified animal welfare auditor, for quality, wholesomeness and the adherence to USDA requirements and regulations. In addition, we track our vendors’ animal welfare audits to ensure that they are abiding by policies remainder.

But we also know that having choices means our customers can select the meal that is most appropriate for their lifestyle.
