During the school year, 21 million kids receive free and reduced-price meals, but when school lets out for the summer, only 3.5 million participate in summer meal programs. We created Feeding Our Future® to help close the gap and ensure children get the nutritious meals they need to thrive.
In 1997 Sodexo launched Feeding Our Future in three 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 4.1 million meals to children nationwide. Feeding Our Future owes its success to the longstanding partnerships between Sodexo, our client and vendor partners, and local hunger-relief organizations.
Feeding Our Future focuses on:
Atlanta, GA; Boston, MA; Buffalo, NY; Camden, NJ; Chicago, IL; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Ft. Worth, TX; Honolulu, HI; Indianapolis, IN; Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; Norfolk, VA; Oklahoma City, OK; Orlando, FL; Pittsburgh, PA; San Jose, CA; Spokane, WA; St. Cloud, MN; St. Louis, MO; Syracuse, NY; Terre Haute, IN; Washington, DC
