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.

Our team hard at work packing 100,000 meals on June 18th, 2018
Since 2014, Protiviti has made it our mission to aid in the fight against hunger. i on Hunger has provided our people with a wonderful opportunity to give back to our local communities and support the efforts towards a hunger-free world. Last night, our 230+ interns participated in a packing event during their training program in Orlando, FL. With the help of the interns, facilitation team and members of our Executive Team and Board, we successfully packed 100,000 meals which fueled us past 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 many of our clients, prospective candidates, family and friends who have helped us achieve the 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! Recently, Protiviti was recognized for these campus partnerships by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), who awarded Protiviti with the 2018 Recruiting Excellence Award recognizing our i on Hunger campaign. The meal packing events that fuel this program’s success requires an all-hands on deck approach. This award specifically recognized many of the leaders in campus recruiting who have worked hard to create these amazing sponsorships.
“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.”

We look forward to continuing to build on this large milestone of 6+ million meals. For more information on the initiative, visit ionhunger.com.
