Global Volunteer Day took place March 19, 2014, when
thousands of Aramark employees volunteered together, bringing the power of their collective energy and expertise to help
build and strengthen the communities where our employees live and work.
Volunteer Day theme, “Inspiring Kids To
Be Healthy For Life,” focused on empowering children and families worldwide
to make healthy nutrition and activity choices.
Volunteers demonstrated the company’s mission to enrich and nourish lives, and Aramark
employees’ collective passion for service. Employees mobilized in a
hands-on opportunity to impact the wellness of thousands of children worldwide.
day, volunteers participated in a wide range of projects that inspired children to stay healthy and active. Volunteers created new play spaces,
encouraged kids to eat healthy snacks and educated them about nutrition and wellness
with demonstrations and food samplings by our expert dietitians and culinary
Miami, for example, we partnered with Branches, a community center focused
on healthy living, to create a new children’s produce garden and outdoor
classroom. Children joined the day’s events and received healthy snack
packs created by Aramark volunteers. In the U.K., volunteers hosted health
and wellness fairs in London, Aberdeen, Birmingham and Alton. And in Chicago
our dietitians and culinary professionals taught pre-schoolers about
healthy food at Casa Central.
