"As an agency providing services to the economically disadvantaged, and with poverty levels in Central Florida higher than the state and national averages, CSC, like many nonprofits, is stretched to capacity. The Sodexo volunteers have helped us in so many ways, allowing us to focus our time and limited funds and resources on our mission to the community. Sodexo is a group of truly selfless and giving volunteers," said, Robert F. Stuart, Executive Director, Christian Service Center of Central Florida and Orlando City Commissioner, District 3.
CSC fights hunger and homelessness through three core programs. Family & Emergency Services provides homeless prevention and hunger relief services from three locations by offering emergency assistance to those faced with unexpected financial crises. The Love Pantry project helps families struggling with food insecurity by providing an emergency food supply at 65 public schools in Central Florida, while also helping to remove hunger as a barrier to learning. From two locations (Downtown Orlando and West Orange County) the Daily Bread kitchens serve a noontime meal to anyone in the community in need, and also provide critical access points for much needed ancillary services like legal aid and health insurance.
Sodexo delivers more than 100 services across North America that enhance organizational performance, contribute to local communities and improve quality of life. The global Fortune Global 500 company is a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations. Learn more at Sodexo Insights.
