CANTON, Mass. -- The Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation gave a $175,000 grant to Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity, the companies reported.

"The Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation is dedicated to supporting the local communities where we live and work," said Karen Raskopf, senior vice president of communications for Dunkin' Brands and co-chair of the Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation.
