One of our most important and successful partnerships is with Rise Against Hunger. This organization’s goal is to end world hunger in our lifetime through hands-on volunteer meal packing events. The Collette team is proud to have participated in these events in our offices in Rhode Island, Canada, the UK, Australia and Lisbon, Portugal. With Rise Against Hunger, our employee volunteers have hand-packed 245,300 meals and counting!

Changing the World One Meal at a Time

Based on our belief that hunger is a problem that we can solve, we have made it a central part of our mission. By leveraging partnerships like the one we have with Rise Against Hunger, we are well on track to meet our goal of providing One Million Meals by our 100th anniversary in 2018. It’s a three-year mission that has unified hundreds of employees from our global offices as well as other members of the travel community.

Sending Meals Through Our Partnership

So far, the meals we have packed as a group with Rise Against Hunger have gone to feed hungry people in Kenya, Peru, South Africa and Poland. 30,000 of our meals have gone to Haiti after the devastating earthquake that left so many people in desperate situations. It makes us feel really good to participate in these events because we know that once we pack a meal, the next hands to touch it are those of a person in need.

Going Beyond One Million Meals

After our 100th anniversary, we will continue to provide meals for people in the most vulnerable corners of the world. For us, it’s about spreading hope, love and food. It’s also about coming together as a unified team to empower others.

By traveling with Collette, you make of all of this possible. Thank you.
