Barbadian Fast Food Franchise to Add Hope: Dominica among its goals
The KFC franchise in Barbados will launch a new, community focused initiative this month. Starting Monday, October 12, 2015 KFC will introduce, “Add Hope” to the Barbadian community – a new platform through which KFC restaurants worldwide give back to their communities.
The launch of “Add Hope“, days ahead of World Food Day commemorated on October 16, 2015 is timely, as one of the main objectives of the overall KFC “Add Hope” Campaign is to fight world hunger with the support of the United Nations World Food Programme, which provides food for millions of people across the world.
This year, KFC has confirmed the need to assist the Hope Foundation, thus “Add Hope” with Hope Foundation will underscore a partnership with the local charity, Hope Foundation – The Centre for Lupus, Arthritis and Sickle Cell, in an effort to assist the Foundation’s efforts and members.
“Add Hope for Dominica” will see the expansion of the humanitarian drive stretching across the Caribbean to help our neighbours who recently suffered massive devastation and insurmountable losses after the passage of Tropical Storm Erika.
Lisa Davis, Marketing Executive at KFC notes: “We are warmed and encouraged by our team members from all of our thirteen restaurants who want to assist Dominicans…as a result “Add Hope for Dominica” was created and it will be an internal effort showcasing the donations of canned foods and non-perishable items from our team to be sent to Dominica. This effort is exactly what the principle of “Add Hope” promotes and we are proud of our team members who have exhibited a charitable and generous spirit which fuels our desire to do our part… We have already made contact with our friends at KFC Dominica and they will assist us to ensure that the donations are distributed.”
An “Add Hope KFC Meal” will soon be added to all of the So Good menus in KFC’s 13 restaurants across the island in addition to canisters and collection bins for items which will allow the wider public to also contribute to the “Add Hope” Campaign which is scheduled to be highlighted until the end of this year.
