The global Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic continues to have a devastating impact on our communities and third sector organisations, including Stop Hunger’s charity partners. For the first time ever, the Foundation is asking Sodexo employees to help shape its future focus.
As the Foundation plans for the future, it is also important to consider the support our charity partners need right now. Last week we confirmed that four of our charity partners will receive a share of a £90,000 donation made by the global Stop Hunger Endowment Fund helping them in their continuing fight against hunger.
Congratulations to our 2020 Stop Hunger Award winners! In a slightly different award ceremony from the usual Sodexo Foundation Dinner, our Sodexo colleagues are recognised virtually in a video presentation.
Each year Volunteers’ Week gives us an opportunity to recognise those spending their time to support Stop Hunger, our charity partners and others truly changing the lives of the most vulnerable within our society.
The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has had a devastating effect on the third sector, with the cancellation of thousands of charity events and fundraising activities. The 2.6 Challenge is aiming to help combat these issues and the billions of lost income for the third sector. We are asking you to join in and help us make a difference.
Karen Burgon, project director at Leeds North and West Foodbank, tells Stop Hunger how your donations to the Trussel Trust really do make a difference.
To share and celebrate our success, we are publishing our 2019 annual report – taking a look back at the impact of our work and revealing that for the first time ever the foundation has raised more than £500,000 in one year.
Thank you to everyone who has fundraised and volunteered with Stop Hunger throughout 2019. Your support has helped the Stop Hunger Foundation to positively impact our charity partners and their beneficiaries more than ever before.
Last month Sodexo volunteers were joined by members of the Cabinet Office for a day of volunteering with Stop Hunger charity partner FareShare at their Deptford food centre. Sodexo volunteer Stephanie discusses her experience and shares a ‘behind the scenes’ look at her day.
Through your fundraising efforts, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has been able to donate £4,000 to the Marylebone Project supporting homeless women.
