Jim Jenkins, CEO of Universities East for Sodexo North America volunteered at the Hunger Outreach Dinner; among his responsibilities as a Chief Executive Officer for Sodexo includes educating community members, clients, and Sodexo employees about hunger and food insecurity among college students.
"Too many college students have to choose between food and educational expenses – as many as 25 percent of them according to a recent report. Sodexo is working with its partners to address the issue and find workable solutions to combat the reality facing many students today," Jenkins said. "The dinner created dialogue about the issue of food insecurity, which is unfortunately prevalent among today's college student population."
Sodexo delivers more than 100 services across North America that enhance organizational performance, contribute to local communities and improve quality of life. The Fortune Global 500 company is a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations.
