At Aramark, our mission is to
create experiences that enrich and nourish lives. We’re in the people business and committed to great customer service at
the moment of truth each and every day -- not only for our clients and the
consumers we serve, but also in the communities where we work and live.
We recognize that the strength of
our communities has a direct impact on our business, and we’re deeply invested
in the neighborhoods where we operate.
Our 270,000 employees have a passion for service and volunteerism and
are committed to building local communities.
Our philanthropic and community
mission is to enrich and nourish lives by creating opportunities for people to
lead healthier lifestyles and succeed in the workplace. We do this by investing
financial resources, the skills and expertise of our employees, and through our
programs and partnerships.
Aramark Building Community (ABC)
– Through ABC, our volunteer and philanthropic program, we partner with
community centers to improve family health, prepare youth and adults for
work, and support individuals and families working their way out of poverty.
Since 2008, Aramark has invested nearly $8.5 million in volunteer expertise,
financial and in-kind resources to strengthen the capacity of more than 100
local community centers in 50 cities, involving the skills and expertise of
more than 25,000 employees and impacting over 4 million people.
Philanthropy – We invest our corporate financial resources and the
support of the Aramark Charitable Fund. Our philanthropic work includes
strategic grants, employee matching gifts, employee scholarship programs and
Volunteerism – We encourage and support employee volunteerism by
providing employees with meaningful volunteer opportunities, and by encouraging
them to get involved in the causes and organizations where they have a personal
interest. Through regional employee resource groups, known as Star Teams, Aramark
employees unite to make a significant impact in our neighborhoods. During Global
Volunteer Day alone, employees gave more than 25,000
hours of volunteer service to help improve community health and wellness by
inspiring kids to lead healthier lives. Nearly half a million families were
impacted by the power of our volunteers on one single day.
