The Sodexo Foundation Recognizes Eight Heroes of Everyday Life for Actively Fighting Hunger in America

The Sodexo Foundation, the anti-hunger charitable arm of Sodexo, Inc., named eight Sodexo employees as 2011 Heroes of Everyday Life for their exemplary efforts fighting hunger in America. Nominated by colleagues, friends, or employers, honorees will each receive a $5,000 grant for the hunger-related charity of their choosing. They will also be formally recognized at the foundation's annual fundraising dinner tonight in Washington, D.C.

"These inspiring individuals understand that hunger among children and their families is not simply a third world reality," said Robert A. Stern, president, the Sodexo Foundation. "They are witnesses to the fact that hunger is where we least expect it – everywhere; and we honor them for giving without measure in their efforts to eradicate it."
