We are proud to work with these organization to further the fight to end hunger
Each day we see women going above and beyond to stop hunger, and over the course of Women’s History Month it’s been incredible to learn about and celebrate women who do whatever it takes to fight hunger in communities across the country. In keeping with this celebration, I am thrilled to announce that the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation is partnering with two new grantees to launch the inaugural Women’s Empowerment Program.
Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF) in New York City and Together We Bake in Alexandria, VA, will each receive a grant of $50,000 annually for three years to support workforce training and personal development programs for underserved and underrepresented women.
Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF) works to help students develop the intellectual curiosity, academic ability, social values, and personal resilience to ensure success in school, career, and life.
Together We Bake is a workforce training program for women in need centered around a small business through which women actively learn and participate in food production, food safety education, and business skills with the goal to make graduates job-ready, empowered, and equipped with a nationally recognized ServSafe certificate.
According to the Asian Development Bank, more than 55% of the progress in the fight against hunger over the last 25 years came from improvements to the social situation of women. We are proud to work with these organization to further the fight to end hunger.
