815 million people worldwide do not get the food they need to live a healthy life. At the current rate, estimates show that by 2050 that number will rise to a staggering 2 billion. Food & Agriculture Organization, United Nations
Since 2014, Protiviti has made it our mission to aid in the fight against hunger. Our program i on Hunger has provided our people with opportunities to give back to our local communities and support the efforts towards a hunger-free world. Our 230+ summer interns recently packed 100,000 meals helping us reach the 6+ million meal mark!
As we celebrate this milestone, we look forward to continuing to share our passion for fighting hunger with others and extend this initiative beyond our internal walls.
With that, we also want to take a moment to recognize and thank our alumni, clients, family and friends who have helped us reach 6+ million meals. In the past several years, we have been able to successfully partner with many of our clients and bring this initiative to several of our core campuses where we’ve enjoyed student participation.
“Food nourishes our mind, body, and soul. We all need it to survive, yet we aren’t all fortunate to receive it every day. To know that at Protiviti, we can make a difference in keeping someone alive every day, even if it’s just one person or one more day, makes me feel like a more responsible human being. It’s also positive assurance that I’m working for the right company, one that wants to positively impact the world not only by what we do, but how we treat others.”
– Kizzy Gift, Senior Manager at Protiviti
