STOP Hunger Efforts

Marquette University and Dining Services have partnered with the Campus Kitchen Project.  This is an effort to build a more sustainable approach to food on campus. The Campus kitchen is a student run kitchen that keeps food from going to waste, turning it into nutritious meals for those who are struggling with food insecurity. In the process, we are developing student leaders and empowering them to create programs that open pathways between college and community. Campus Kitchen is student-powered hunger relief.   Learn more about the Campus Kitchen Project here.  Volunteer at the Marquette campus Kitchen by contacting  Amanda Parrell Kaczmarek at campuskitchenatmarquette@gmail.com  learn more about the Campus Kitchen Project here.

 

STOP Hunger Food Drive

At Sodexo, we are continuing our mission of giving back to the communities we serve by implementing our company-wide STOP Hunger Food Drive initiative. Accounts like yours across the country will be participating in this community outreach initiative, which is designed to help your neighbors in need by donating non-perishable food items to a local food bank.

Servathon

Sodexo Servathon is an essential part of our community service efforts. Sodexo sets aside the month of April for its employees across the nation to join forces to fight hunger in their communities. Employees gain gratifying experiences while developing important team-building skills. Some activities may include fundraisers, canned food drives, donations of surplus food, volunteering at food banks, and signing up for payroll deductions to support Sodexo Foundation.
