Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation’s Response to the COVID-19 Crisis
Dear Supporters and Friends,
During the COVID-19 crisis the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has sustained its mission of ensuring children and their families have access to food. In partnership with national, regional and local nonprofits like No Kid Hungry, the Alliance to End Hunger and multiple food banks, we continue to support people who are struggling with hunger. Unfortunately, we are far from done.
The need to stop hunger has never been greater. According to Feeding America, food banks across the country have seen more than a 50% average increase in demand and many local food pantries and meal programs have closed or suspended operations. With escalating unemployment and concerns for sustaining strong immune systems, people throughout the United States will continue to need access to a nutritious food supply for months to come.
The Stop Hunger Foundation applauds the heroic actions of anti-hunger leaders and front-line employees who are helping to ensure families and children have access to food. We are also proud to recognize this year’s Stop Hunger Brady Scholars – a group of dedicated youth who have worked tirelessly to bring innovative solutions to ending hunger in their communities. Their efforts to stop hunger send an encouraging message that individually, and together, we can make a difference in the lives of those struggling with food insecurity.

Despite these difficult and uncertain times, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation is committed to getting through this crisis and will continue to work with our partners to meet the nutrition needs of community members. Please help us win this battle against food insecurity and hunger by sending a donation to Stop Hunger. One hundred percent of your donation will be dedicated to helping those in need.
Thank you for helping ensure people have access to a healthy and sustainable food supply today and every day.
Executive Director, Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation
