Yum! Brands, the parent company of restaurants including KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, is organizing "World Hunger Relief Week" from October 14 - 20 to raise awareness about the crisis of global hunger and mobilize action. They are working with the United Nations World Food Programme in this event.
"World hunger is a problem of epic proportions, and unfortunately it is increasing each day. As the world's largest restaurant company, we believe it is our privilege and responsibility to use our clout and make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate who are starving around the globe," said David C. Novak, Yum! Brands Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our World Hunger Relief efforts will continue year after year. Our goal is to create a global movement to help stop the dying, and start the living. We believe we can truly make a difference in the lives of others by helping them move from hunger to hope."
