Helping Communities Make It

With communities across the country facing unprecedented challenges, US Foods® harnesses the power of food to empower communities in need with nourishment and opportunity.

As an extension of our Promise to help our customers Make It, our Helping Communities Make It program enables US Foods to help meet the growing needs of this moment and make a meaningful difference where we live and work. Our efforts are focused on the areas where we can continue to make the greatest impact:

  • Hunger Relief – We believe we can help eliminate hunger in our communities. As a leading foodservice distributor, US Foods is uniquely positioned to help ensure food gets to the individuals and families who need it most. Throughout the year, we donate cash and product to Feeding America food banks and other hunger-fighting organizations across the country who share our mission to nourish those facing food insecurity.
  • Culinary Education – We believe we can empower the next generation of culinary talent. Our US Foods Scholars program awards financial support and professional development opportunities to outstanding students who need additional resources to pursue careers in the foodservice industry.
  • Disaster Relief – We believe we can enable communities to recover faster. As an Annual Disaster Responder Program partner, US Foods aids in the sheltering and feeding of those left vulnerable in times of emergency and disaster by helping to ensure that the American Red Cross has the resources they need year-round to quickly mobilize before disaster strikes.

At US Foods, we empower our associates to give back in their local communities through annual volunteerism and donation campaigns and equip them with the resources they need to uplift their communities year-round.

Spring into Service

Spring into Service invites associates and leaders to celebrate the start of spring by participating in an annual week of service to support food-insecure individuals and families throughout the communities in which we operate.

Hunger Action Month

Every September, US Foods supports Feeding America’s national Hunger Action Month with an associate engagement campaign focused on fighting hunger across the country through volunteerism, giving and awareness building.

Giving Gratitude

Giving Gratitude encourages associates to harness the power of gratitude throughout the holidays by sharing what they are thankful for, to generate company matching donations to Feeding America and its network of food banks!
