(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Gaithersburg, MD - November 28, 2011 - The Sodexo Foundation, the anti-hunger charitable arm of Sodexo, Inc., announces the final week for accepting applications for the Stephen J. Brady STOP Hunger Scholarship program. The application period closes December 5, 2011.
Up to five students will be selected as national winners. Each will receive a $5,000 scholarship award and a matching $5,000 grant in their name for the hunger charity of their choice. In addition, up to 20 students will earn regional recognition, with a $1,000 donation in their name to the hunger charity of their selection.
There are 16.2 million children living in food insecure homes in the United States. That is one in five children, said Robert A. Stern, president of the Sodexo Foundation. As a result of job scarcity and an unstable economy, children at risk of hunger are emerging in food insecure homes and neighborhoods where we least expect it.
