Our Fight Against Hunger Has Now Delivered Over 4 Million Meals!

We are excited to announce that we have hit another huge milestone in the fight against hunger – over 4 million meals made! The 4 millionth meal for i on Hunger was surpassed Monday evening at the Advanced Consulting Challenge in Atlanta.

Check out this video from the event:

Video Transcript: Here we are at the Advanced Consulting Challenge School in Atlanta, where we are continuing our fight against hunger. You can see we’re holding an event tonight – a packing event – people have been working extremely hard, pushing through, and we’re excited to announce that we have now achieved over four million meals delivered worldwide. Congratulations, Protiviti! Thank you for your passion, your efforts, and your impact that you’ve made around the world. Keep pushing us higher and higher – five million meals, here we come! Hunger doesn’t stop, and neither do we.

Since announcing our achievement of 3.5 million meals last October, 55 other events have contributed to our new 4+ million total. One such event was in our Oman office where our team supplied important momentum with their i on hunger event. They packaged and distributed more than 126,000 meals in conjunction with Nidaa Al Khairi, a nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged children.

“We are delighted at the achievement of the 4 million milestone,” said Middle East and India Country Market Leader Sanjeev Agarwal. “The IOH program has presented us with a great opportunity to give back to our communities and in the process build relationships with our colleagues and clients beyond the work we do together”.

He continued “The enthusiasm and commitment of the volunteers during the food drives has been a great motivator for more people to join the campaign and help in reaching out to communities most in need of help, especially children. Our member firms in the Middle East and India are happy at being able to distribute over 300,000 meals in the last couple of years and will continue participating in the global initiative.”


To date, Protiviti has worked with 101 partner organizations to accomplish this incredible milestone. We couldn’t have done it without the help of each and every one of our employees. Congratulations Protiviti – way to make an impact!
