The Cheesecake Factory’s Pumpkin Cheesecake is a creamy cheesecake baked in a graham-cracker crust and topped with fresh whipped cream. The Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake is the best of both worlds, combining a layer of pecan pie with a layer of pumpkin cheesecake finished with caramel and pecans all in a flakey pastry crust.

“Our guests look forward to Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake returning to our menu every year, and we’re so pleased that these very popular cheesecakes will benefit Feeding America again this year,” said David Overton, Founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory.

The Cheesecake Factory’s donation to Feeding America is one of several programs focused on supporting hunger-relief in America. Annually the company’s staff members across the country participate in a Peanut Butter Drive during Hunger Action Month to benefit local Feeding America food banks. In 2016, The Cheesecake Factory’s generous staff members collected more than 223,000 pounds of peanut butter, and they are currently hard at work collecting peanut butter for this year’s drive. The company also participates in a Harvest Food Donation Program by regularly donating fresh food from its restaurants nationwide to local food rescue operations for distribution to soup kitchens and shelters to aid those in need. Since the program’s inception in 2007, The Cheesecake Factory has donated more than 4.3 million pounds of food.
