OUR ACTIONS

The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation works with and through partners to help end childhood hunger in the U.S., because no child should be hungry today or risk being hungry again tomorrow. 

 

Globally, Stop Hunger is working for a hunger-free world in 3 fields of intervention: support to local communities in need, women empowerment, and emergency assistance affecting entire populations in areas of chronic hunger. Stop Hunger relies on local and international partnerships with 1,200 NGOs, as well as the unique ecosystem of Sodexo, its founding partner. 

Locally, we focus on the following activities:

  • Stop Hunger Servathon
  • Food Recovery and Donations
  • Cause-related Partnerships
  • Payroll Giving
  • Community Gardens

We provide additional support through the following programs:

  • Feeding Our Future® – A summer meal program where Sodexo partners with hunger relief organizations to provide free nutritious meals to children. Watch the video: A Day in the Life of Feeding Our Future
  • Backpack Food Program – A program where local food banks, supported by Sodexo, provide backpacks filled with non-perishable food to students in need to take home and eat when school meal programs are unavailable.
  • On-Campus Food Pantries – A program where local food banks and colleges, supported by Sodexo, help combat the silent epidemic of hunger on college campuses and support students’ quality of life. The objectives of this program are to increase food insecure college students’ access to nutritious foods so that they can focus on their health, wellbeing, and academic success.

Servathon

Sodexo sets the month of April aside to join forces globally to fight hunger in local communities. Employees gain gratifying experiences while developing important team-building skills. Servathon activities include fundraisers, food drives, volunteering at food banks, donating surplus food and payroll deductions.

Food Recovery and Donations

Sodexo's top priority after preventing food waste is to feed the hungry. As part of Sodexo's Better Tomorrow roadmap, our Stop Hunger program encourages all of our accounts to divert surplus food by donating to local charities to help feed those most in need. Sodexo donates surplus perishable and non-perishable food to Feeding America members and other local food banks across the country. Donating food that would otherwise go to waste not only feeds hungry people, it helps the environment by reducing food waste.

Community Gardens

The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation funds many community garden projects through our YSA partnership and the Youth Grant Program. Community gardens provide opportunities for those in need to eat fresh fruits and vegetables they may not have the opportunity to buy. Gardens also educate children on the importance of eating healthy.
