Sysco LABS completes Phase 5 of ‘Share a Meal, Share a Moment’

1 min read

Sysco LABS Sri Lanka recently concluded the 5th phase of its flagship CSR initiative ‘Share a Meal, Share a Moment’ which supports the food and nourishment needs of underprivileged communities. Phase 5 of the program was held in the Galle District, with dry rations and essential items donated to families in Benthara, Balapitiya, Ambalangoda and Kadawath Sathara.

‘Share a Meal, Share a Moment’ was launched in 2020 to provide food parcels and hampers to people adversely affected by challenging socioeconomic conditions. To date, the initiative has nourished over 35,000 people in the Colombo and Galle Districts. Sysco LABS intends to reach underprivileged communities in other rural districts in subsequent phases of the programme.

Speaking on reaching Phase 5 of the initiative, Gavi Perera, Associate Director – Property at Sysco LABS said: “Share a Meal, Share a Moment is an initiative that’s very close to our hearts and was initiated to assist underprivileged communities with their immediate nutritional needs. It is a company-wide effort to supply food to identified communities, with our associates also donating their personal funds to maximize impact. Despite different logistical challenges this year, we are glad to have been able to expand beyond Colombo and hope to reach communities in other remote areas of the country in the future.”

The ‘Share a Meal Share a Moment’ initiative is inspired by Sysco’s ‘200 million meals’ sustainability goal which aims to assist those in need across Sysco’s global communities.
