The Cheesecake Factory Donates a Meal for Every DoorDash Order from Its Restaurants in September


In recognition of Hunger Action Month, for every delivery order from
The Cheesecake Factory® and Grand Lux Cafe® placed on DoorDash in
September, the company will donate one meal to Feeding America®

Continuing its longstanding support of Feeding America®, The
Cheesecake Factory
Incorporated (NASDAQ:CAKE) will
donate one meal* to Feeding America for every order placed on DoorDash
from The Cheesecake Factory and Grand Lux Cafe restaurants across the
United States this September in recognition of Hunger Action Month.

The September donation to Feeding
is just one of several hunger-relief programs The Cheesecake
Factory has initiated. For every slice of its recently introduced Very
Cherry Ghirardelli® Chocolate Cheesecake sold through February 2019**,
The Cheesecake Factory will donate 25 cents to Feeding America. Since
2008, The Cheesecake Factory has donated more than $4.3 million to
Feeding America through the sale of its specially designated
cheesecakes. Additionally, The Cheesecake Factory and Grand Lux Cafe
staff members across the country participate in an annual Peanut Butter
Drive during Hunger Action Month to benefit local Feeding America food
banks. In 2017, the Company's generous staff members collected more than
186,000 pounds of peanut butter, and they are currently hard at work
collecting for this year's drive. The Company also participates in a
nationwide Harvest Food Donation Program by regularly donating fresh
food from its restaurants to local food rescue operations for
distribution to soup kitchens and shelters. Since the program's
inception in 2007, The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated has donated more
than 4.7 million pounds of food.

"We are so pleased to support Feeding America with the donation of a
meal for every order placed on DoorDash during Hunger Action Month,"
said David Overton, Founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory
Incorporated. "Feeding America's network of food banks does such
meaningful work in each of our restaurants' communities, and we are
honored to support them."
