Here’s how we’re planning to make an impact in our communities around the world

November 18, 2020

Serving Billions, one at a time. 

At McDonald’s, our purpose is to feed and foster communities. 

Every time a customer orders something from McDonald’s, our restaurants and employees are doing more than just serving a warm meal. We’re serving our communities.

We serve our communities because their home is our home—because where we are is where we serve. And we’re consistently inspired by the way people come together in ways big and small to support their communities. But they can’t afford to go it alone, they need support now more than ever. 

That’s why we’re prioritizing our role and commitments in the tens of thousands of communities we operate in. 

By focusing on four areas that matter to our communities, we believe we can have an even greater impact on tomorrow.

Dive into the four areas of impact below:

1. Food Quality & Sourcing 

We are helping to create a future of quality, secure and sustainable food. Because how our food is produced and where it comes from matters to our customers, communities and the environment. Visit the Food Quality & Sourcing page to learn more. 

2. Our Planet

We are driving climate action and accelerating circular solutions to keep waste out of nature, because we’re committed to protecting our planet for communities today, and in the future. It’s one reason why we were the first global restaurant company to set a science-based target to reduce emissions in our restaurants, offices and across our supply chain.

3. Community Connection

We are supporting connection, families and communities in times of need, because being part of the community means supporting people every day, and especially when they need it most.

We’re strengthening our commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities and featured them in our out-of-home and billboard advertising to continue to encourage Americans to support this important organization. Visit the Community Connection page to learn more. 

4.  Jobs, Inclusion, Empowerment 

We are serving up bright futures by providing opportunity for education and skills in the communities we serve and accelerating equity and inclusion across our business. Visit the Jobs, Inclusion, & Empowerment page to learn more. 

We’re proud of the impact we have every day across the country, feeding and fostering communities in the hundreds of cities and towns we call home. We’re proud to serve.
