This scholarship program urges students to apply to #Get5Give5 to help end hunger in their communities. Students from kindergarten through graduate school are eligible to apply for a $5,000 scholarship with matching $5,000 grant for the hunger-related charity of their choice.
Hunger in America is real
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 41 million people living in the United States, including 13 million children, lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year. Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation has an 11-year legacy of investing in young leaders and their innovative ideas because we believe they are the generation to end childhood hunger.
