Company becomes first restaurant foodservice signatory to engage in voluntary agreement

Chick-fil-A, Inc. is anchored by a commitment to have a positive influence throughout the communities it serves, and one way that comes to life is through our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts to care for our planet.  

At Chick-fil-A, we embrace opportunities to act as good stewards of the planet we share and try to decrease our environmental impact. We’re honored to demonstrate this commitment by being the first restaurant foodservice signatory to join the U.S. Food Waste Pact.  

About the U.S. Food Waste Pact 

The U.S. Food Waste Pact, led by national nonprofit partners ReFED and World Wildlife Fund, is a national voluntary agreement that helps food businesses reduce their food waste. Guided by a global framework – “Target, Measure, Act” – it helps participating companies test, implement and scale high-impact food waste solutions.   

Through this sustainability commitment, Chick-fil-A, Inc. and participating Chick-fil-A restaurants will support and contribute to the U.S. Food Waste Pact’s national goal of reducing and preventing wasted food by 50% by 2030.  

Why it matters

According to ReFED: 
• 38% of all food in the U.S. goes unsold or uneaten.  
• One in 10 Americans face food insecurity. 
• Food waste can negatively impact greenhouse gas emissions and freshwater supply. 

Prioritizing food waste reduction can help address these critical issues. That’s why Chick-fil-A, Inc. has a CSR goal to divert 25 million pounds of restaurant food waste from landfills by 2025. 

“Joining the U.S. Food Waste Pact represents how committed Chick-fil-A is to accelerating food waste reduction,” says Heather Beaubien, Director of Sustainability for Chick-fil-A, Inc. “One of the best ways Chick-fil-A® restaurants can serve our local communities is through donating surplus food to those in need through the Chick-fil-A Shared Table® program, composting food scraps, and engaging in other food waste reduction efforts that can have an incredible collective impact.”
