Our Stop Hunger success

Time 84 days ago Comments 0 comments

2019 was a record-breaking year for Stop Hunger. For the first time ever, with your help the Foundation raised more than £500,000, making significant donations to 13 charity partners and impacting the lives of more than 300,000 beneficiaries. Unfortunately, 2020 continues to be a challenging year for our communities and third sector organisations, including Stop Hunger’s charity partners.

Even with such a difficult year, Stop Hunger has been able to overcome adversity and continue to deliver significant impact throughout its 2020 financial year.

You helped Stop Hunger fundraise more than £450,000 last year helping the Foundation to donate almost £300,000 to 19 charity partners, as well as recording more than 2,500 hours of volunteering in the past year as a result of your loyal support. The Foundation could not have achieved this amazing result without you; its Charity Champions, volunteers and fundraisers.

To celebrate these successes, the annual Stop Hunger report has been created to clearly demonstrate where more than 5,000 of your Sodexo colleagues have shown their heart. The report's new format is different from previous years and has been developed so you can easily show how you played your part – we encourage you to download and share the report with your colleagues and clients (click here).

On behalf of the Foundation’s trustees, thank you to everyone who has and continues to support Stop Hunger helping us to deliver real impact in local communities across the UK and Ireland.

If you’d like to help shape Stop Hunger’s future focus, you still have the opportunity to take part in the Foundation’s first ever survey for Sodexo employees.

The anonymous survey is your chance to share your thoughts and experiences on volunteering, fundraising and the future of Stop Hunger.

Click here to complete the survey - this should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes.

Start Safe, Stay Safe image

Don't skate on thin ice

Over the festive period, did you check your mulled wine wasn’t too hot to drink? Or take a trolley to pick up the big Christmas food shop, instead of straining to carry a heavy basket? These are simple risk assessments we all make in everyday life to keep ourselves and others safe. Yet we sometimes forget to apply the same at work and keep up-to-date with crucial HSEQ changes.

Festive 5 Elf

Mental ‘elf’ comes first

In December 2020, we encouraged everyone to put their mental ‘elf’ front and centre by taking part in Festive 5 – our regional festive Stop Hunger fundraiser. With your support, the activity collectively raised more than £2,700 that will go towards helping those most vulnerable within our local communities.

Back to work but feeling a bit out of sorts? It can take a while to get back into a work routine after a break, but be sure not to let safety take a back seat and help us to avoid the January 'bruise'.
