During the school year many children receive free and reduced-price meals and when school lets out for the summer, many don't get the meals they need to thrive. Supplemental feeding programs such as Feeding Our Future can help offset threats posed to the child's capacity to learn and perform in school resulting from under nutrition. Feeding Our Future is designed to help fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need.
In 1997 Sodexo launched Feeding Our Future in 3 cities (Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, DC) and served 25,000 meals in its first year. Since its inception, the program has provided more than 3.4 million meals to children nationwide. Feeding Our Future owes its success to the longstanding partnerships between Sodexo, our clients and vendors, and local hunger-relief organizations.
Feeding Our Future focuses on:
