Sodexo Romania joined also in 2014 the international campaign SERVATHON 2014
Every year for the past 10 years, Stop Hunger’s Servathon has provided an opportunity for everyone to join together to fight against poverty, hunger and malnutrition.
Over a two-month period (April-May), Sodexo’s volunteer teams throughout the world work to serve people in need. Providing thousands of free meals, holding food drives across the world, supporting communities through the sharing of knowledge by Sodexo experts with non-governmental organizations and associations: that’s the spirit of Stop Hunger’s Servathon.

The gifts were offered to the children with the occasion of 1st of June party.
