Stop Hunger


Volunteer with Stop Hunger

Sodexo employees are entitled to up to three days’ paid volunteering each year, with charities that aim to tackle hunger and malnutrition. Sodexo employees can both volunteer with our nominated charities and also with local charities of their choice. Volunteering plays an important part in the Foundation and is a chance for employees to give something back.

How to volunteer?  It’s simple!

1. Request approval

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

2. Decide and book your volunteering activity

To volunteer login to and select one of the below methods to find an opportunity.

Method 1- Follow this simple guide, to volunteer with charities/community groups in your local area 

Method 2- Follow this simple guide, if there are no volunteering events in your local area

Method 3- Follow this simple guide, for group volunteering (classified as 4- 10 people max) if you are a group of three or smaller, refer to Method 1

Please note - Neighbourly is an external social platform that connects charities and community groups to volunteers.
