Whataburger Feeding Student Success

Whataburger and Students Go Hand-in-Hand


Whataburger celebrates the potential of all students and the power of education through Whataburger Feeding Student Success. The program focuses our charitable giving at the intersection of food insecurity and education through college resource rooms, scholarships, and community philanthropy.

Since launching the program in 2020, we’ve given more than $5 million to support communities and students in need.

Feeding Student Success has three components: 

College Resource Rooms 

When college students are hungry and concerned about basic needs, they can’t achieve their fullest potential. Our five co-branded college resource rooms provide food and other essential items for students, and do so in an accessible way, with a warm welcome from a brand they trust.

Scholarship Funds 

Whataburger’s Feeding Student Success Scholarship Fund provides opportunities for high school, college, university and technical school students across our footprint to take the next steps in their education journey. Whataburger employees, who we call Family Members, also have scholarship opportunities through the Feeding Student Success Scholarship Fund 

Community Support 

When we build a Whataburger restaurant, we gain a new community, and we know they all have unique needs. We want to make sure all our communities are a place Where Goodness Lives, and we will continue to support local programs that generate education equity and provide safe, enriching community spaces. We know we can make the most impact when we partner with local organizations within our footprint that share our commitment to helping students succeed.
