The Popeyes Foundation

The Popeyes Foundation’s mission is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to strengthen communities with food and support in times of need. In 2023, the Popeyes Foundation launched “Serving with Love,” an initiative focused on directing a percentage of funds raised in-restaurants locally through the “Food Love” Grants program and continuing emergency-related support for Team Members through the Team Member Love Program.

Through the Team Member Love Program, Popeyes Foundation assists with urgent needs of employees and/or their immediate family members who may be victims of natural disasters or other emergency hardship situations. Since the program was established in 2017, the Family Fund provided more than $500,000 in grants supporting 530 team members.

In 2023 and beyond, the Popeyes Foundation along with local nonprofit partners will be serving with love to our communities through the “Food Love” Grants program. Support will be focused on those experiencing food insecurity and those with limited access to food.

What makes this program unique is “Food Love” is part of Popeyes® soul. You see, part of Popeyes beloved New Orleans roots is about being there for our neighbors and serving our communities through food. That’s why the Popeyes Foundation serves love to its people and communities that stretches beyond those Cajun favorites. It’s ensuring everyone has a seat at the table, homemade-style, soul warming, no matter what you don’t go hungry kind of love.

But not everyone has access to this kind of love, and that’s what ignites the Popeyes Foundation’s purpose. At Popeyes, everyone is family.

“Food Love” grant support ranges from supporting a local food bank, out-of-school youth meal support and delivery meal programs for homebound elderly, to providing frontline workers disaster-related food support.

Since 2018, the Popeyes Foundation has also been proud to partner with No Kid Hungry, a national nonprofit focused on giving all kids the food they need to thrive. Thanks to customers and franchisees, more than $1.7 million has been donated to support No Kid Hungry efforts.
