Supporting armed forces communities around the world

Our expertise and insight into the special demands of military life enables us to deliver a large range of integrated food and facilities management services that improve the quality of life for women and men serving their countries, and their families, on domestic bases and on missions overseas.

We serve most American and European armed forces and have supported the British military for over 30 years.

We are proud to serve the armed forces and support them day after day in their daily life, wherever they operate to ensure our safety.

Supporting the military community in every way we can

We are proud to serve our armed forces around the world and recognise that our defence forces meet extraordinary demands every single day. To support the military community in every way possible we provide additional support, beyond service provision.

An extensive range of specialists to support the military community

We support the military community with adapted food and facilities teams, programs, community activities and social networking events, as well as Social and Behavioral Health Programs thanks to our experienced Sports Dietitians, Clinical Psychologists, Data Scientists, Technicians, Case Managers, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers and our amazing partnerships.

Strong policies to support Reservists

We are committed to being flexible in granting leave to enable employees to train with the Reserve Forces. When circumstances allow, granting additional unpaid leave per year to help reservists support the regular Armed Forces.

Positive recruitment of ex-military personnel

We actively recruit ex-services personnel to help with transition into civilian life and in our Public Service Pledge, as part of our commitment to the Armed Forces, we have pledged to employ 200 ex-service personnel by the end of 2018.

Helping military families

We recognise that regular postings associated with military careers can cause big disruptions to family life, so we aim to minimise these kinds of disruptions by providing employment opportunities for the spouses of service personnel who are posted into areas where we have contracts.

Support for Armed Forces charities

We are proud to support a number of service charities, in particular SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. Our partnership with them has included volunteering, employee fundraising, sponsorship of some of their key activities and, through Sodexo’s Stop Hunger Foundation, we fund SSAFA’s homelessness fund.
