Stop Hunger Day 2019

Stop Hunger Day will be taking place across the UK and Ireland on 15 May 2019.

Make a #MyStopHungerPledge this Stop Hunger Day and get involved with activities to support Stop Hunger this summer. From fundraising and volunteering, to taking part in our employee lottery, there are many ways you can make a difference.


Go volunteering

Sodexo employees are entitled to up to three days paid leave each year to volunteer with Stop Hunger nominated charities and/or with a local charity of your choice via Neighbourly. You can find out more information about Sodexo's volunteering policy here.


How to volunteer with Stop Hunger? It’s simple!


1. Request approval

Request approval from your line manager and ask them to complete the absence form. For information on volunteering absence types click here.

2. Book your volunteering activity

  • Use Neighbourly's filters on the right-hand side to choose your event and click ‘Volunteer’
  • Sign up or log into Neighbourly
  • Type in the employee-volunteering voucher code STOPHUNGER
  • If you are volunteering with a team, input the details of your team members and select ‘Finish’

If you are interested in volunteering with clients or can't find a date or location to suit you, please contact StopHunger.UKandIE@sodexo.com.

Sodexo Volunteer Lead - please read

A Volunteer Lead (which would either be yourself or the appointed team leader for group volunteering) must be responsible for contacting the charity, introducing yourself and the volunteering team (if you are volunteering as a group), confirming the details of the day and reading and distributing the relevant Health and Safety documents prior to the volunteering event.

The charity’s Health & Safety documents must be read and will be found in the "Information" tab of the volunteering event on Neighbourly. If there are no Health & Safety documents available, please ask the charity to send it to you when you contact them or alternatively email StopHunger.UKandIE@sodexo.com for more information and help.
