ARAMARK Invests An Additional $1 Million To Help People Get Healthy And Ready For Work

PHILADELPHIA, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ARAMARK, a global leader delivering food, facilities and uniform services, today announced it will invest an additional $1 million in grants, in-kind resources and volunteer support to continue to help vulnerable families improve their health, secure jobs and ultimately move from poverty to success through partnerships with local community centers.

This ongoing commitment is part of ARAMARK Building Community, the company's strategic philanthropic and volunteer program. Through ARAMARK Building Community, the company partners with Families International, Inc. (FI), the largest network of local, independent community centers to enhance programs that provide vital resources and solutions to help people live healthy and productive lives. The investment will bring ARAMARK's total contribution to community centers to more than $8 million, impacting more than 3.5 million vulnerable children, adults and families in communities around the world.

"We are a people business and giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of who we are and part of our culture," said Eric Foss, ARAMARK CEO and President. "We work hard every day to demonstrate our commitment to building local communities. ARAMARK is uniquely positioned and committed to enriching and nourishing lives.  Having thousands of passionate employees so enthusiastic about serving their local communities is one of the attributes that makes our company so great."

Susan Dreyfus, President and CEO of Families International Inc. noted that it is vital for the public and private sectors to join together to be strong advocates for youth and families, and develop new and innovative ways to help them. Almost 23 million people in the U.S. remain unemployed or underemployed, and poverty continues to grip over 46 million Americans. At the same time, obesity and other nutrition-related chronic diseases are on the rise.

"ARAMARK's deep and long-term support allows community centers to work more collaboratively to integrate services that help people live healthier lives, find meaningful work and strengthen communities," she said.
