Stop Hunger is a Sodexo initiative active in over 40 countries around the world. In the UK & Ireland, we work with charities to donate time, skills and money to tackle hunger, support good nutrition and promote life skills in local communities. Our work contributes to and forms part of the Sodexo global corporate responsibility programme, one of the pillars of our Group CEO's new strategy for the company.

We are pleased to say 2018 was another fantastic year for the Stop Hunger Foundation. Together we raised over £400,000 during the past year, which has helped to support the work of 15 charities including several new beneficiaries, such as City Harvest and Edinburgh Food Social. The money raised has been distributed in grants to our charity partners which has helped fund everything from cooking equipment for the UK's first commercial bakery for young people with severe autism to providing food and living aid to veterans.

Of course, hunger and malnutrition is a huge problem globally, with 795 million people in the world not having enough food to lead a healthy, active life; that’s about one in nine people on earth. However, it is also a problem here in the UK and Ireland, with 10% of children estimated to be living in households facing severe food insecurity. This is why we are working with charities like FareShare and Trussell Trust to tackle hunger across the country together.
