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!

New York Office Honored with Astor Corporate Award

Last week New York Office Market Leader Carol Raimo accepted the Corporate Award from Astor Services for Children and Families on behalf of the New York office at their annual gala. This year’s theme was “Breaking the Stigma Around Mental Health.” The award recognizes our New York office’s exceptional contributions to support children and families affected by the stigma associated with mental health and to raise much needed funds to build sustainability for the organization.

For over 60 years, Astor Services for Children & Families has been providing children’s mental health services, child welfare services, and early childhood development programs to traumatized and vulnerable children in the Bronx and the Hudson Valley.

“I proudly accepted the Corporate Award on behalf of our entire office, who has really pitched in and provided wonderful support to the Astor Services organization,” said Carol. “We so highly pride ourselves in our Commitment to Our Communities, and this recognition shows that our hard work is always worth it.”

The New York office has been working with the Astor Services organization for more than two years. Most recently, the office donated gifts to families over the past holiday season and several team members now serve on Astor Services’ Jr. Board.

Astor Young Professionals Board President Nicole Giambarrese said, “Your company was nominated for this award because you have demonstrated the same passion for bringing awareness to children’s mental health in our communities and for your endless support to the Young Professionals Board. The board acknowledges Protiviti’s commitment in creating an environment that is inclusive, collaborative, and even family-like.”
