KFC Foundation teams up with Crisis Text Line

Written on 05/18/2022

The KFC Foundation strives to support and empower KFC restaurant employees at every phase and stage of their lives.

We’re proud to continue this support through our new partnership with Crisis Text Line®, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which provides free 24/7 text-based mental health support and crisis intervention.

Everyone has mental health. And everyone—at some point—just needs someone to talk to. That’s where Crisis Text Line comes in.

Members of the KFC family can text “Fries” to 741741 to text confidentially with a compassionate, trained Crisis Counselor anytime, anywhere.*


What is Crisis Text Line?

Crisis Text Line is a non-profit organization that provides free, 24/7 crisis counseling via text message. Their vision is to help create an empathetic world where nobody feels alone. You are their priority. When you text “Fries” to 741741, a Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool calm and will guide you to ensure you are safe and healthy.

Are messages with Crisis Text Line confidential?

Yes. Your conversation stays between you and your Crisis Counselor unless sharing it with emergency services is absolutely necessary for your safety or the safety of others.

KFC Family Fund

The KFC Family Fund is also here to help KFC restaurant employees in crisis situations that result in a financial hardship, such as a death in the immediate family, medical emergency, house fire, natural disaster, substance abuse treatment, and more.
