Our Actions

Servathon

Throughout the year, Sodexo employees around the world join forces to alleviate hunger. The month of April is dedicated to service and volunteering. During Servathon, we serve meals, collect non-perishable food, and host hot dog days, bake sales and a variety of other activities.
On 2019 Servathon, we had more than 340 volunteer hours, that translated into 4,873 meals served and $11,374 raised.

Group of Stop Hunger Volunteers

Our Fredericton colleagues at the University of New Brunswick staged their “Stuff a Truck” event. They filled a truck with recyclable glass bottles worth $589.40 for the Stop Hunger Foundation.

Another 12-volunteering team at Marymound in Winnipeg served a full meal to 150 at-risk youth in partnership with our client IG Wealth Management. (picture) 

Volunteers Stop Hunger

One of our teams in Northern Manitoba at Keeyask Camp, even held a giant community barbeque for Indigenous neighbours in Fort Chipewyan where food and equipment were airlifted to reach the northern hamlet.

Sodexo Suppliers Show Generosity

During the 2019 annual Stop Hunger Gala, we raised an unprecedented $222,150, thanks in large part to the generosity of Sodexo suppliers. Over 200 suppliers celebrated with Stop Hunger board members and volunteers, community organizations and Sodexo employees at the Burlington Convention Centre in October.

Three Sodexo employees were also recognized with the Hero of Everyday Life award for their extraordinary contributions to alleviate hunger. Jennifer Merrett, Taneesha Greaves and Trudy MacKenzie received grants totaling $2,000 for charities of their choice.
