On Thursday, September 17th, thousands of Aramark employees nationwide participated in Aramark Building Community Day: a day set aside each year for volunteering and giving back to each region’s local community. As big of an impact that this event creates, it also provides a snapshot of what is already occurring in our company as we daily enrich and nourish the lives of the people we interact with. Participation was widespread this year and the impact that it made even more so.
Our Rhode Island food and facilities team were eager to participate in this event in our own area, and spent the day volunteering at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. Their commitment to distribute food to the needy and to end hunger made them the perfect choice for us to partner with for this event. 15 people from our region took an afternoon away from the office to sort through the donated food and assist in any way they could. As a result, the food we organized was able to be distributed more quickly to reach the people that depend on it all over the state. This day made such a substantial impact and The Rhode Island Community Food Bank was so grateful for our help.
We were thankful that we got the chance to participate and serve our local food bank. We look forward to what good Aramark Building Community Day will bring next year, and in the meantime will be continuing our commitment to enriching the lives of others each and every day.
