Nearly 2,000 Chick-fil-A® restaurants participate in Chick-fil-A Shared Table®, a program for Owner/Operators to donate surplus food to charitable organizations in their community.
How it worksAt the end of each day (except Sundays), participating Chick-fil-A® restaurants prepare and package their surplus food for donation to local organizations to help reduce hunger and food waste.
|Food Donation Connection helps Chick-fil-A® restaurants partner with local nonprofits and organizations, like soup kitchens, senior centers and after-school programs.|
|Chick-fil-A Team Members regularly package extra food, such as biscuits, Chick-fil-A® Nuggets and other prepared items.|
|Participating nonprofits and organizations pick up the packaged food.|
|The donated food is transformed into new meals – like chicken parmesan, stir-frys and breakfast casseroles – and served to those in need.|
Food insecurity affects 1 in 10 people. It’s a growing issue, but – together – we can make an impact. Thanks to participating Chick-fil-A restaurants and their community partners, 23 million meals have been served to those in need in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

The Chick-fil-A Shared Table program is just one part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility. Inspired by our founder's belief that "a good company is a caring company," we prioritize several initiatives that provide support to our neighbors, communities and the planet we share.
Chick-fil-A Shared Table™ is part of a larger vision that we share with our community to help people in need. Our Team Members get really involved – they know our food is going to help others instead of being thrown away, and they embrace that opportunity to give back.
