McDonald’s Founder Ray Kroc used to say, “We have an obligation to give something back to the community that gives so much to us.” Today, McDonald’s remains committed to being a good neighbor in thousands of local communities where McDonald’s restaurants operate.
More than 50 years after the Company’s founding, we are still a good neighbor and leverage our size, global reach and franchise model to positively impact the communities we serve. Franchisees and suppliers also support community activities in the areas they serve.
While the expression of our collective commitment to giving back varies from country to country, the Company is globally aligned around two main priorities:
By addressing needs such as education and physical activity.
We are proud to support local organizations in the Bowling Green area including:

Food Waste & Donation
McDonald’s believes that good food and precious resources should never go to waste, and we want to use our scale to help tackle this global challenge. We’re working with our supply chain and restaurants to ensure our food serves its purpose, and we’re donating meals and ingredients to feed families in need in local communities across the globe.
Community Support & Crisis Response
With over 38,000 locations worldwide, we are uniquely positioned to give something back to the many communities we serve. Because the majority of our restaurants are run by independent Franchisees, McDonald’s has deep roots in communities and knows how best to be there for them, whether that’s providing a delicious meal, volunteering in the neighborhood or helping during a time of need. COVID-19 has brought many new challenges, but our McFamily has stepped up to support communities during the crisis.
