Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation partners with some of the nation’s top non-profit organizations that are making a difference in the fight against child hunger in the United States.
Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has supported Share Our Strength since 2003. Our support includes funding nutrition programs and youth engagement activities, connecting children across the country with nutritious meals, creating the youth activation site, Generation No Kid Hungry and supporting the Youth Ambassador program.
Youth Service America (YSA) supports a global culture of engaged youth committed to a lifetime of meaningful service, learning, and leadership. Working with partners around the world, YSA helps young people find their voice, take action, and make an impact on vital community issues. Our work with YSA includes a national grant program for youth-led projects aimed at fighting hunger and creating resources and trainings for youth and educators that support youth engagement activities focused on child hunger.
The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) is a national community service organization that works with students to share on-campus kitchen space, to recover food from cafeterias, and engage students as volunteers who prepare and deliver meals to the community. CKP goes beyond addressing the symptoms of the problem and identifies the levers of change that will fix the underlying systemic issues for good by going beyond the meal and by developing student leaders. Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation helps fund the expansion and development of CKP, which is present on 20 Sodexo operated campuses, by supporting an online planner tool and video grant competition.
Food Recovery Network (FRN) empowers individuals, communities and food businesses to change the way they view and handle food surplus. FRN unites college students to fight food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food on campus and donating it to people in need. Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation is a founding funder of FRN. Sodexo support extends to campuses where FRN exists through hands-on support, as well as food safety experts who advise FRN to ensure that food donations meet food safety and quality assurance standards.
Accredited by Food Recovery Network, Food Recovery Certified is the first nationally recognized food recovery certification program that recognizes businesses for recovering their surplus food for local non-profits.
Alliance to End Hunger is a coalition of over 90 members with a shared conviction for addressing hunger by fostering strategic partnerships, building political commitment, supporting hunger free communities initiatives, and advocating for the National Alliance Partnership Program. Our work with them involves developing a youth advocacy strategy in an effort to end hunger.
Congressional Hunger Center is a nonprofit that works to make issues of domestic and international hunger a priority to policy makers in the U.S. government, and to raise a new generation of leaders to fight against hunger and poverty. Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation helps fund the Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program, a social justice program that trains, inspires, and sustains leaders.
