Caring is a constant undercurrent at Chick-fil-A, and many of our staff volunteer for community service events organized through the Team Chick-fil-A Employee Volunteerism Program. From serving meals and hosting supply drives to planting trees and mentoring students, community service is a popular team-building activity at
Chick-fil-A. Staff can also use paid hours away from work, known as Wellness Hours, to volunteer with nonprofits that matter to each individual.
Throughout our restaurants, Support Center and subsidiaries, more than 200,000 people represent the Chick-fil-A® brand. From wellness programs and community volunteering opportunities at the Support Center, to leadership development and a scholarship program in Chick-fil-A restaurants, we aim to provide a place where people can thrive and belong.
Dating back to our founder, a cornerstone principle at Chick-fil-A is to treat everyone with honor, dignity and respect. These values have manifested themselves in everything we do — and we prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion throughout our organization.
Scholarships at Chick-fil-A began when founder S. Truett Cathy set an empty mayonnaise jar on his restaurant counter to start a college fund for Team Member
Eddie White. Since 1970, Chick-fil-A has invested more than $136 million in scholarships to help over 80,000 Team Members pursue a college education and achieve their remarkable future — whether it’s with Chick-fil-A or elsewhere.
