Sodexo feeds Kwantlen students who hunger for education

(METRO VANCOUVER, B.C.) On February 7, 2011 Sodexo Canada presented a $100,000 donation to Kwantlen Polytechnic University in support of financial awards for students. Sodexo’s contribution will support three annual awards for Kwantlen students over the next ten years. As the current on-campus food service provider for Kwantlen’s four campuses, Sodexo has been remarkable with their commitment to customer service, food selection and student support.

The awards funded by Sodexo support three aspects of Kwantlen students’ experiences. The first award, valued at $5,000 will recognize a student pursuing a degree in any area of study at Kwantlen who achieves academic excellence and participates actively in the community. The second award will be offered in the form of a $2,500 bursary to a student experiencing significant financial need. Finally, the third award, valued at $2,500 will be available to a student who demonstrates community involvement and volunteerism. 

“We wish to support a broad range of students,” Raymond Lee, Sodexo Canada, vice-president for BC and Alberta explains, “These awards achieve that with several different criteria, from academic achievement to leadership.”

Sodexo continues to amass national and international awards and accolades such as, one of Canada’s most ethical companies for the second year, one of Fortune Magazines most admired companies, and a 2011 Canadian top employer. 

Both Sodexo and Kwantlen continue to achieve success by remaining committed to enhancing the quality of life for those around them.

 

Sodexo Helps Miners in Chile

Following the accident on August 5, 2010, which trapped 33 miners under 700 meters of earth, our team in Chile moved in to deliver food services to those working tirelessly to rescue the trapped miners.

Teaming up with two of our clients, copper mining entities Antofagasta Minerals and Lumina Copper, we volunteered our time and donated food to support the rescue mission.

Our commitment to the communities in which we operate is a key element of our Better Tomorrow Plan. The “Feeding Hope” operation, which we began on August 16, is a great reflection of our commitment.

Sodexo donates more than 50,000 meals to the rescue efforts of the 33 miners in Chile

During two months of volunteer work in coordination with the authorities, our colleagues in Chile distributed more than 50,000 meals - equivalent to 40 tons of food. We served breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack every day to the 300 people in the rescue teams, including authorities, police and army forces, as well as other representatives who worked endlessly around the clock.

"As a company dedicated to being a good corporate citizen and a member of the mining community, we are proud to have been a part of this historic event in which the miners have all been rescued. Staying the course until the last miner was rescued and reunited with their family has been an extremely rewarding experience as we have moved from hope to pure joy,” said Carlos Urrutia, Strategy and External Communications Director, Sodexo in Chile.
