“Enterprise Rent-A-Car is woven into the fabric of the thousands of towns and neighborhoods where we do business, and food insecurity is an issue in all of those communities.”
Carolyn Kindle Betz, Senior Vice President and Executive Director – Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation, October 2016
Globally, one in nine people don’t have enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, according to the World Food Programme. That’s why, in late 2016, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation launched one of the largest donations aimed at fighting hunger. The program – called Fill Your Tank – celebrated the company’s 60th anniversary by committing $60 million to address food insecurity around the globe.
Over six years, $10 million will be distributed annually as follows:
- $2.5 million to Feeding America®, the largest U.S. domestic hunger-relief and food rescue charity. These funds will help fight hunger among seniors and children.
- $1.5 million to Food Banks Canada to support operations and infrastructure in food banks across Canada.
- $1 million to The Global FoodBanking Network to expand the work of food banks around the world, including:
- $5 million to local food banks and pantries in North American communities served by Enterprise.
