    After hearing from employees about a desire to have an easier way to donate excess food to the less fortunate, the popular restaurant chain launched a pilot program in partnership with food tech platform Copia and delivery service DoorDash. As of now, 26 of the Cheesecake Factory’s 206 restaurants participate in the program, which donates to local nonprofits.
