Upon arriving at their Geneva center, we had a quick orientation to the organization’s mission and our day’s work. According to their statistics, one hour of volunteering creates 108 meals for those in need. No wonder why they were thrilled to see the large turn out from our company for Servathon!
This video about Hungry Kate had a tremendous impact on me. Knowing that 1 in 5 kids that faces hunger across northern Illinois made me think about the luxury cup of coffee I bought on the way out there. What if I donated that five dollars instead?
I’m happy to report that as a group the Sodexo team packed 9,300 pounds of food which provided 7,750 meals for hungry families. We also inspected and packed 256 cases of bread!
