The Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger Scholarship program honors young people’s creativity and youth-driven approaches to tackling America’s hunger problem. These young individuals are fostering change by raising awareness and inspiring peers in their neighborhoods. The scholarship recipients range in age from 5 to 25, are recognized on a national and regional level, and come from all around the nation. Over $1 million in grants and scholarships have been given out by the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation since the program’s start in 2007.
STOP HUNGER FOUNDATION
All children should have access to enough healthy meals each day, in our opinion at Sodexo, so they can study, play, and flourish.
Due to this, we established our Stop Hunger campaign in 1996, and the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established in 1999. Our goal is to guarantee that every child in the United States has reliable access to enough nourishing food as they grow up so they can live a healthy, fulfilling life.
In order to feed children in the United States today and promote policies that guarantee no kid will go hungry again tomorrow, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation mobilizes professionals, trailblazers, volunteers, and donors. This includes the workers at Sodexo, who year-round support Stop Hunger by giving their time, resources, and knowledge, organizing fundraisers, and inspiring others to become involved.
All administrative expenses for the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation are covered by Sodexo, Inc., ensuring that every dollar raised benefits those in need. We have donated more than $34.5 million to reduce child hunger since the program’s start.
