A statement from the UK and Ireland’s Stop Hunger Foundation trustees on the Ukraine crisis
In 2021, the Stop Hunger Foundation’s regional celebrations are back with a bang! Coinciding with National Volunteer’s Week, a one-off Stop Hunger Week event will be taking place from 1 to 7 June 2021. With activities galore, including opportunities to sign-up to in-person volunteering and the last ever BIG Sodexo Quiz, Stop Hunger is giving Sodexo colleagues the chance to take part where they can.
What started off as a dare between brothers has developed into the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge involving six Sodexo colleagues. On Friday 21 May, seven participants will run over Yorkshire’s legendary three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in under 6 hours to raise money for the Stop Hunger Foundation.
In October 2020, the Stop Hunger Foundation launched its first ever Sodexo employee survey asking our main fundraising and volunteering contributors to help shape our future focus. Now is the time to reveal the results and what changes the Foundation is making.
Keeping up the momentum of its charity partner lockdown support, Stop Hunger recently donated £84,000 to FareShare. The grant will help the charity meet the costs of transporting increased volumes of food caused by the global Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Each year, Sodexo launches an annual winter fundraising activity to support Stop Hunger and it's charity partners. In December 2020, Sodexo introduced Festive 5 - the chance for Sodexo colleagues to get moving 5 km, support their mental wellbeing and raise money for good causes over the festive season.
Over the past year, the kindness of Sodexo colleagues was seen once again in the many donations, fundraising activities and volunteering hours contributed to Stop Hunger's charity partners, enabling them to support those most in need through the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. To bring their impact to life, watch a special thank you video from the Foundation's charity partners.
In September 2020, Sodexo’s Integrator Property Management team set off on a virtual adventure to exercise their way around the world in 80 days raising money for Stop Hunger and two colleague nominated charities.
St George’s Crypt, a Leeds based charity that works to support the homeless, the vulnerable and those suffering from addiction, has received a £5,000 donation from the Stop Hunger Foundation.
Presented in a new format, this year’s annual Stop Hunger report has been created to celebrate the Foundation’s successes, clearly demonstrating where our contributors have helped make a difference. With more than £450,000 raised across the 2020 financial year, this new document puts their support at the heart of the Foundation’s impact.
