In 2021, we have decided to celebrate the Servathon throughout the year in order to give back as much as possible to communities in need. You will find below some details on the upcoming activities you can organize with your teams.
Servathon Fundraising - How does it work?
One of the great advantages of contributing to the Stop Hunger Foundation is that you are assured that 100% of the donations go to the fight against hunger, since Sodexo covers all of the Foundation's management costs. In addition, as a Sodexo employee, for every contribution you make, a corresponding amount will be donated by the company. As a result, all sites that will be conducting a fundraising activity are invited to report the amounts raised to the Foundation and to specify what portion of the amount comes from employees. Stop Hunger will then ensure that a request is made for an internal transfer of the amount and that the amount corresponding to the employees' share is matched. A check will be issued to a local NGO chosen by the site on their behalf.
Why Participate ?
According to the Breakfast Club of Canada, more than 2 million children in Canada will be food insecure as a result of COVID-19
According to Second Harvest, 1 in 7 families in Canada is currently food insecure
By participating to one of these initiatives, you will have the opportunity to donate the funds to a local NGO chosen by your site
All units that participate in one or more activities during the calendar year will be eligible to win the Stop Hunger Cup + a $ 500 grant for the charitable organization of their choice
This is a simple and easy opportunity to help those in need!
The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has launched the new online Goodness Platform, a volunteering platform that connects Sodexo employees with in-person and online opportunities to serve in their community and continue fighting hunger.
If you are a Sodexo employee interested in using the Goodness Platform visit the Stop Hunger page on SodexoNet or contact us for more details.
