STOP Hunger Where It Starts
Since 1999, the charitable arm of Sodexo , the Sodexo Foundation, has been committed to being a driving and creative force that contributes to a hunger-free nation. In order to eliminate hunger that affects 36.2 million people in the U.S., we must fight its root causes. The Sodexo Foundation supports innovative programs to help children and families in the United States who are battling problems like poverty, unemployment, lack of education, and food insecurity.
