Working for a hunger-free world is the mission of Stop Hunger. The commitment, energy and determination to help those most in need brought together thousands of volunteers around the world during the Stop Hunger Servathon.
With 56,000 volunteer members of Sodexo’s ecosystem in 34 countries, Servathon 2017 demonstrates its great capacity for mobilization.
While this international event is an occasion for food collections, meal distributions and fundraising, Stop Hunger volunteers also take measures to enable those most in need to permanently escape hunger.
