Aramark extended its health and wellness commitment, Healthy For Life™ into Boston on Wednesday, March 19 as part of the company’s inaugural Global Volunteer Day. More than 125 local employees volunteered to provide children and families with better access to healthy food, nutrition education and active play and physical activity spaces. In partnership with the Curley Community Center, a member of the Boston Centers for Youth and Families, Aramark established a Healthy for Life™ Zone that will be a year-round hub for health and wellness education and awareness. Volunteers prepared family meal kits that children took home to share with their families, and children also received mini vegetable-growing kits that they can cultivate themselves.  Aramark employees also enhanced the center’s exercise rooms by painting inspiring sports and fitness murals throughout the facilities to encourage physical fitness. 

Global Volunteer Day is an extension of Aramark Building Community, the company’s volunteer and philanthropic program that enriches lives by helping improve family health, preparing youth and adults for work and supporting individuals working their way out of poverty in Boston and in 52 additional cities around the world. Through Aramark Building Community, the company donates time, expertise, financial and in-kind resources to help families in need. Since 2008, in partnership with community centers around the world, Aramark’s employees have impacted the lives of more than four million families. Please join us on Facebook.
