Sodexho honors its ‘heroes’ who volunteer

Among the 120,000 employees at Sodexho USA are a handful of “Heroes of Everyday Life.”

At least that’s what the food and facilities management services company calls its employees who work to fight hunger in their local communities.

The organization’s charitable arm, the Sodexho Foundation, bestows the award annually, along with a $5,000 grant to each winner’s hunger-related charity of choice, and recognizes the volunteers at a dinner.

“Heroes” are selected for volunteering for hunger-related organizations, coordinating food drives, raising funds for local food banks and food rescue organizations, helping to address the root causes of hunger and motivating others to join in the fight against hunger.

One 2011 winner assisted more than 700 low-income families in West Dallas by organizing food drives, soliciting donations and providing school supplies. The employee, an instructional designer, also counsels youth in juve­nile detention centers and teaches Eng­lish as a second language in her community.
