Because we believe that Quality of Life begins when basic needs are met, Sodexo employees in the U.S. decided to create Stop Hunger in 1996.
American colleagues in the Boston area found that for some children, not having the school cafeterias opened during summer break also meant not having enough nutritious food. Sodexo’s employees decided to take on the service of free meals in the poorest neighborhoods. Thus was born Stop Hunger.
Today, Stop Hunger is a leading force in the fight against hunger. It is an independent entity that leverages Sodexo’s ecosystem - employees, clients, consumers, suppliers and shareholders - to conduct actions in the 80 countries in which the company operates.
