Sodexo: Sodexo employees in 36 countries mobilized to fight hunger; 815,000
meals donated to those in need
Issy-les-Moulineaux, July 22, 2014 - More than 33,000 Sodexo employees in 36
countries donated and collected enough food for 815,000 meals and raised funds
to fight hunger and malnutrition during the company's annual Servathon in
April and May. All together Sodexo employees volunteered more than 82,100
hours to help their local community members have enough food to eat.
Every year for the past 10 years, Stop Hunger's Servathon has provided an
opportunity for employees to join together, often hand-in-hand with Sodexo's
clients, to fight against hunger and malnutrition. Over a two-month period,
Servathon teams throughout the world work to serve people in need by providing
thousands of meals, holding food drives, and raising money to support local
stop hunger efforts.
"The real power of Servathon is the Sodexo people. By coming together in local
actions this operation has a real impact on the people most in need," said
Clodine Pincemin, President of Stop Hunger. "What happens in all of the local
communities radically changes the lives of people, and Sodexo volunteers often
report that they are transformed by their participation as well. I am very
grateful to Sodexo for helping us in our mission to fight hunger and
malnutrition around the world."
Created in 1996 by Sodexo, Stop Hunger is now a dedicated non-profit
