keeping neighborhoods healthy

Businesses thrive in healthy communities, so we do our part to improve the wellness of the communities where our guests, team members and their families live and work. With the help of our national and local nonprofit partners, we support public health objectives including food security, physical fitness and support for children with special health care needs.

Since we know that taking part in community service is an important part of living a fulfilling life, we offer our team members plenty of opportunities to get involved in their communities. We also support a variety of community fitness activities, such as running and biking events, that encourage community members to live active, healthy lives.
