"Not many people know that 1 in 6 Cook County residents are food insecure.
That's 16 percent of those who live in Cook County that don't always know
where their next meal is coming from", said Chavel. "Sarah's volunteer
efforts are playing a critical role in the fight to end hunger in the area and
we are proud to award her this scholarship."
Suh, a resident of Buffalo Grove, Ill., is student president of the Campus
Kitchen at Northwestern University (CKNU). Support for the organization is
aligned with Sodexo's STOP Hunger initiative, which spans 42 countries on 6
continents and mobilizes communities to join together in the fight against
hunger, malnutrition and food waste locally. Suh has volunteered more than 800
hours to CKNU and helped serve nearly 17,000 meals in the Evanston, Ill.
community. She plans to present the matching $5,000 grant to the Campus
Kitchen at Northwestern University.
Sodexo's STOP Hunger initiative has a long history in Cook County and
throughout Illinois. Since 1997, Sodexo's Feeding Our Future® program has
provided approximately 268,250 meals to children in the greater Chicago area.
Last year Sodexo employees raised and donated almost $40,000 to the Northern
Illinois Food Bank. And since 2000, Sodexo Foundation has provided Chicago
hunger-relief organizations with 34 grants totaling more than $1,395,600.
