NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. , August 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: GCM) announced today that it will recognize all teachers at 2,000 schools in the United States with more than $1 million in free Chipotle*.

“Teachers cultivate a better world by shaping the next generation,” said Chris Brandt, Marketing Director. “As a longtime supporter of education, we encourage our fans to join us in recognizing teachers and their impact on America’s youth.”
Children in Need Foundation
Chipotle will also leverage its Round-Up to real change feature on the Chipotle app and Chipotle.com to support the Kids In Need Foundation (WWW.KINF.ORG), a national nonprofit organization that partners with teachers and students in underserved schools to provide the resources teachers need to teach and learners need to learn. Through August 31, Chipotle invites customers to join its mission to cultivate a better world by rounding up their bill to the highest dollar amount on the Chipotle app or Chipotle.com to donate to the Foundation’s Teacher Supply Program Kids In Need. Each teacher at participating schools will receive supplies to fuel a semester of active learning including notebooks, folders, pencil cases and pouches, pencil sharpeners, rulers, erasers, highlighters, sticky note pads and pens. In the United States, more than 94% of public school teachers pay for school supplies out of their own pocket and, on average, they spend almost $500 for their respective classes**.
Chipotle’s Round Up for Kids In Need Foundation raised more than $2 million to date for thousands of underfunded teachers and students across the country.
In addition to supporting teachers and its local communities, Chipotle also offers its workforce the opportunity to pursue higher education at no cost through its partnership with guild education, the nation’s leading education and development company. After just 120 days of employment, employees are eligible to earn debt-free degrees at leading nonprofit accredited universities in 100 majors through its Cultivate Education program. Additionally, Chipotle’s Tuition Reimbursement Program allows eligible employees to be reimbursed for their tuition fees up to $5,250 per year in qualification programs. Chipotle also offers English as a second language to all employees and their families, development opportunities through its learning management system (LMS), Spice Hub, and more.
