It really is that easy to support. A simple scan can make a biggie difference.

By scanning, new Wendy’s app users can even score a FREE 10-piece Chicken Nuggets with any purchase.* Get rewarded for doing good.

Supporting foster care adoption is a biggie deal, but helping make a difference is as easy as 1,2,3:
