Sodexo Donates to Chicago Food BankSeptember 28, 2020
Sodexo recently coordinated the donation of 139 pallets of emergency ready-to-eat meals to the Sinai Community Institute in Chicago and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
The meals were a surplus from nonprofit Move For Hunger’s Detroit, Michigan location. Sodexo worked with its volunteer transportation partner, Nelson Westerberg of Illinois, to transport and distribute the food to the Chicago charities. In addition, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has donated US$100,000 to the Food Depository.
“Leveraging the reach of our Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation and our large footprint of clinical dieticians and nutrition services across the country, Sodexo’s mission has always been to provide nutritious meals and help people live healthy lives,” explained Catherine J. Tabaka, Sodexo Healthcare North America CEO. “The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many and the resulting economic impact demonstrates how rapidly one can be at risk of hunger—especially in vulnerable communities—which is why we are making sure that no resources go to waste.”
