At the 2019 Sodexo Foundation Dinner on 19 March 2019, Sodexo CEO Denis Machuel asked the crowd of attendees to stand up and make their annual pledge to support Stop Hunger.
In the four months since the event, over 300 Sodexo colleagues from across the UK and Ireland have fulfilled their pledge and volunteered with Stop Hunger – including Catherine and Jo from the Brand & Communications team (pictured above), who took part on the hottest day of the year!
On the annual day of support, ‘Stop Hunger Day’, held this year on 15 May, over 60 Sodexo colleagues, suppliers and clients from the UK and Ireland region gave up their time to volunteer, with many more making a Stop Hunger pledge.

Stop Hunger has also been approached and asked to facilitate opportunities for over 20 people and even supported a team from the Cabinet Office. The team from No.10 teamed up with Sodexo colleagues at FareShare’s Deptford food centre. You can read more about their volunteering day in a story written by Student Experience Manager Stephanie Allen, who joined the Cabinet Office team to pack food orders for local charities before delivering them to the community.
We are still encouraging as many of you as possible to sign up to Stop Hunger volunteering activities. Every Sodexo employee can take up to three days paid leave each year to support Stop Hunger’s volunteering efforts – so what’s stopping you? Your support really does make a big difference!
