We know that we must be active citizens within the communities in which we live, work and serve. Sysco’s commitment to social responsibility encompasses corporate donations, employee volunteer initiatives, and fundraising partnerships that make a difference every day in our communities across the country.
Most of our charitable contributions are focused on fighting hunger in the United States. A primary commitment is to Share Our Strength, the leading national not-for-profit organization devoted to eliminating childhood hunger. For the past several years, we have been the official foodservice distributor of Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation fundraising events across the country featuring top local chefs.
We have also participated in Dine Out America, a hunger relief effort that asks local restaurants to donate proceeds for two weeks to fight childhood hunger.
Our local operating companies also donate food generously to local food banks and non-profit groups.
