Helping people access and
explore life outside the box

At Jack in the Box, we know the value of being original.

For over 70 years, our unique style and way of doing things has revolutionized the fast-food industry. This is why we champion the importance of originality and opportunity through our philanthropic arm, the Jack in the Box Foundation. Established in 1998, our Foundation helps people challenge societal boxes holding them back and explore what inspires them to live life to the fullest, on their own terms.

“Jack in the Box is dedicated to investing in the communities that our restaurants call home.
Our customers are also our neighbors, our friends, and our extended family, and we are proud to support them as they explore what life outside the box can mean for them.”

-Darin Harris, CEO

Giving Programs


Food is at the core of what we do, so we are dedicated to impacting childhood hunger and food insecurity nationwide. Jack in the Box believes children should be focused on learning, playing, and growing, not on where their next meal is coming from.


Our franchise operators and restaurants are passionate about investing locally by working with high impact, youth-focused organizations. Through Jack’s Community Grants, we support nonprofits who feed, educate, and empower youth in our restaurant communities.


We operate the Team Jack Relief Fund to help our people take their next step forward in times of hardship by providing emergency financial assistance to employees who are victims of a natural or personal disaster.

Key Initiatives

No Kid Hungry

We are proud to partner with No Kid Hungry to ensure kids get the food they need to thrive. To date, our restaurants have raised $4.5 million and counting for this worthy cause through our annual Give $1, Get a Curly Fry promotion during the month of September.

Employee Volunteerism

Our employees are committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work. Each year, we volunteer hundreds of hours together to serve meals, pack food, clean up public spaces, collect and donate supplies to those in need, wrap holiday gifts for youth and families, and more.

Disaster Relief & Preparedness

We have teamed up with the American Red Cross to help people affected by disasters receive the care, shelter, and hope they need in times of crisis. We can quickly deploy system-wide fundraisers when a large-scale disaster strikes, as well as smaller-scale responses when a local restaurant wants to support its community.
