You can volunteer for up to three days per year with any organisation or charity aligned to Stop Hungers aims.
If you are not sure where to start, volunteering with Stop Hunger charity partners is available all year round. Contact us at StopHunger.UKandIE@sodexo.com to arrange a Stop Hunger charity partner volunteering opportunity.
So whether running a supermarket collection for a local Trussell Trust foodbank, volunteering at a community farm, distributing surplus food with FareShare or supporting the homeless with a soup kitchen, follow these simple steps to start volunteering:
Contact the relevant charity or email us at StopHunger.UKandIE@sodexo.com to arrange a Stop Hunger charity partner opportunity. Think about the date, the number of volunteers and of course location.
Don't forget that your help should be driven by what the charity or organisation needs help with, so the preferred date, numbers of voluntees and location may vary.
Request approval from your line manager - your manager will have to complete an absence form.
Confirm your volunteering with the relevant party once the approval process has been completed.
Please remember that once you have booked, your chosen charity will rely on you to be able to offer your services on the day. Please regard this booking as a work commitment and find a colleague to take your place if you can no longer attend. As a last resort, please make sure to cancel at least two weeks before the event.
