Aramark volunteers expect to log more than two million minutes today -- lending their time, energy and expertise at service projects in the United States, Canada, China, Korea, Mexico, Czech Republic, Germany and the United Kingdom, to bring health and wellness education and workforce readiness programs to community members.

“One day each year, we come together for our annual global day of service,” said Lynn B. McKee, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Aramark. “Aramark Building Community Day demonstrates our year round commitment to enriching and nourishing lives. Today, thousands of our employees will volunteer together to build healthier communities and achieve our goal of creating long-lasting impact.”

“Aramark is the exclusive NFL retail merchandiser for special events and is the food, beverage, retail and facilities partner of 14 NFL teams, so we are especially excited this year to team up in Huddle for 100,” said Carl Mittleman, President of Aramark’s Sports & Entertainment business. “Today alone, our team members expect to volunteer millions of minutes in their local communities, and we will continue to log our time throughout the rest of the year.”

In addition to projects across the globe, Aramark will host signature projects, with up to 100 volunteers, in Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Camden, NJ.

Global ABC Day projects include:

ABC Day supports Aramark’s Healthy for Life® commitment to improve the health of Americans, and Aramark’s Feed Your Potential 365 public health and well-being campaign, promoting healthy lifestyles.
