This year's Stop Hunger Day took place across the UK and Ireland on 15 May 2019.
A huge thank you to everyone who fulfilled their #MyStopHungerPledge and helped volunteer and fundraise across the region. You all made a difference in the fight against hunger.
You can still make your #MyStopHungerPledge 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 help us tackle hunger and malnutrition - find out how you can help below.
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.
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.
