  • 1st prize = £1,000
  • 2nd prize = £150
  • 3rd prize = £100

The more employees who participate, the bigger the prize fund, and the more money we raise for Stop Hunger.

Anybody who accesses their payslip through the Sodexo Reward Hub.

How much does it cost?

It costs £1 a week to take part in Your Lucky Number.

If you are paid weekly, £1 will be deducted every week directly from your net pay.

If you are paid monthly, £5.34 will be deducted from your net pay in the first month and after that £4.34 will be deducted each month to ensure that there are sufficient funds to cover those months where there are five weeks and therefore there will be five draws before your next pay day

You can only play once a week with Your Lucky Number.

What will happen after I sign up to play?

Firstly you will receive an email which includes Your Lucky Number (your employee number) to confirm that your online form has been received and processed. Once your payment begins, which you will see on your payslip, you will be entered into the weekly draw. It’s that simple.

How will I know if I have won?

The weekly draw takes place on a Monday.

We will contact you by email to give you the good news and you will receive the prize money directly into your bank account within a couple of days.

All the results will be publicised each week right here on Your_Sodexo and in The Weekly Brief.

Impact Stories

The purpose of the Stop Hunger Foundation is to alleviate hunger and to provide education and support beyond food aid to promote health, nutrition and wellbeing. The Stop Hunger Foundation raised over £450,000 in 2017 to support the most disadvantaged individuals and communities in the UK and Ireland and these are the impact stories that have come out of the money we have donated.


The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has provided Focus Ireland, a homeless charity that works with people who are homeless or are at risk of losing their homes, with a donation of €15,500 over three years. Our support went towards Focus Ireland’s coffee shop which is the first port of call for those at risk of homelessness. Our grant was able to provide 20,753 meals from February to July 2017 which catered to 4,144 customers.

The Kennedy family (Mum, Dad, four children) attended the coffee shop in June. They had become homeless due to the ongoing housing and homelessness crisis in Ireland. Focus Ireland’s coffee shop is where they came with their children for help. On arrival, they were brought upstairs to the family room, a private space where they could relax.
The family was provided with a hot, nutritious meal. The parents were then met by an advice and information staff member who advised them on accessing emergency accommodation and financial advice. The advice and information team then began to source accommodation for the family, while emergency food was packed for them.
The Kennedy family is now in emergency accommodation and is working with Focus Ireland staff towards securing a permanent family home.
