Our Purpose & Impact

Here at McDonald’s, our purpose is to feed and foster communities. When we say, “billions served,” we’re not just talking about burgers. We’re talking about serving our communities, customers, crew, farmers, franchisees and suppliers. Because we know there’s a difference between being in a community and being part of one. Across states, territories, and everything in between, these things don’t create communities. People do. We’re consistently inspired by the way people come together in ways big and small to support their communities. But they can’t afford to go it alone – they need support now more than ever. In response, we’re prioritizing our role and commitments in the tens of thousands of communities we operate in. We’re also speaking up about our impact on the communities we have been serving for more than 50 years here in Australia, and how we plan to feed and foster the future of those communities over the next 50 years. How can McDonald’s make the biggest difference? As we look to the future, we believe we can have an even greater impact by focusing on four areas that matter to our communities.
