Sodexo Wins Champions of Good Award by National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre
November 16, 2018
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life services has been recognised as a Champion of Good for the second consecutive year by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC). The award recognises companies in Singapore that are exemplary in giving and sustaining a compassionate society.
In line with Sodexo’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) roadmap Better Tomorrow 2025, the companyactively engages all stakeholders including employees, clients and consumers to improve the Quality of Life for all.
Sodexo proactively tackles the issue of hunger and malnutrition through Stop Hunger, a programme set up by employees and now a non-profit organisation. In Singapore, the company has donated 2500 healthy meals in 2018 to the underprivileged and provided nutritional advice through the flagship event Servathon.
In 2018’s edition of Servathon, more than 500 volunteers from Sodexo lent their support to the cause. Across the week, volunteers helped out at Willing Hearts, a soup kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes 5,000 meals daily to over 40 locations island-wide for the disadvantaged. Volunteers also put up an entertaining event for 100 seniors living in one- to two-room flats at Circuit Road, serving up a wholesome lunch and playing interactive games to present nutritional tips.
Across the year, Sodexo also organises other outreach programmes to benefit various non-profits including Food Bank Singapore, and others.
