Whataburger Partners with Feeding America to Provide 2.5M Meals

Whataburger honors its legacy while giving back to local communities during Orange Spirit Week. This year in honor of its 71st anniversary, Whataburger is partnering with Feeding America to help provide at least 2.5 million meals through local food banks across Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

The 2021 celebration will kick off in San Antonio on August 8 with a drive-through teacher appreciation event. During the week, Whataburger employees known as family members will assemble and deliver 10,000 school supply bags to local organizations across 10 states.

Every dollar donated during the fundraiser from August 8 through August 15 will go to Feeding America and its member food banks in the local communities where donations occur. This effort is in support of Whataburger Feeding Student Success, the company’s program operating at the intersection of food insecurity and education.

Whataburger started on August 8, 1950 in a tiny burger stand in Corpus Christi. An entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson set out to build a burger so delicious that customers would take that first bite and say, “What a burger!”
