Festive supermarket sweep

Festive supermarket sweep

Last weekend, more than 30 Sodexo colleagues volunteered their time to support Stop Hunger at Tesco supermarkets up and down the UK in their annual Food Collection.

The food items donated by their customers will go directly to The Trussell Trust and FareShare to support families and those most in need over the upcoming festive season. As part of the collection, for every item donated in-store, Tesco will generously add an extra 20% top-up.

Lesley McDonald, UK&I HSE Manager (Service Operations), attended a food collection at Tesco in Altrincham with colleague and friend Julie Wagner, UK&I Food Safety Manager. Lesley had a great time collecting food knowing that it was going to a great cause, "It was really enjoyable and such a good feeling when you see the donations start to fill up – there are lots of generous people in Altrincham! It has definitely spurred me on to want to do more.

Thank you to all those who took part in last weekend’s activities – what a great way to finish 2019!

Stop Hunger continues to support volunteering for all Sodexo colleagues across the region. How many volunteering days have you used? Sodexo employees are entitled to use up to three paid days each holiday year to volunteer.

Stop Hunger has multiple volunteering opportunities now available. Why not organise a team-building day, whilst helping those who need it most?

Quick facts:

  • At The Trussell Trust, just £20 could help support someone take their first steps out of poverty.
  • £60 at FareShare could feed a family affected by domestic violence for one month at a women’s refuge.
  • The Trussell Trust say that just £10 can help give a mother peace of mind that her family will not go hungry tonight.
  • With FareShare’s support, £20 could provide 80 hot meals for families on low or no incomes at a community centre.
