KFC Nassau made a significant impact in the local community once again, with the KFC Add Hope Campaign, the annual quest to help alleviate hunger in The Bahamas, and worldwide. In 2018 the campaign raised over $28,000, as well as a significant amount of non-perishable food items donated by the KFC Nassau staff and team members to assist Hands for Hunger and its vision to transform The Bahamas by bringing food relief and the access of nutritious meals to many Bahamians.

Each year, KFC Nassau joins KFC restaurants around ­the globe to bring awareness and action to the global crisis of food insecurity through partnering with and leveraging the impact of hunger relief organizations that can provide access to much-needed food resources to those in need. In 2018, longtime partner of KFC Nassau and local hunger relief and food rescue agency Hands for Hunger was once again named the Add Hope Campaign's recipient.

"Over the years, the relief efforts of the KFC Nassau Add Hope Campaign raised a substantial amount of monetary funding and non-perishable food items thanks to the continuous and generous support of the brand's consumers, staff and the Bahamian community," said Eldira Backford, KFC Nassau's Add Hope Campaign ambassador. "At KFC Nassau, we are keen in giving back to the local communities we serve and partnering withimpactful organisations such as Hands for Hunger, who share in the same sentiments that great progress has been made in the fight against hunger over the years, but understands that with partnerships like this, the progress is even greater."
