A renewed commitment to Caritas

June 20, 2024

At Pluxee Luxembourg, social commitment is an essential part of our culture. This year, our employees once again demonstrated their commitment by taking an active part in a volunteering initiative in partnership with Caritas. Their mission: to prepare fresh, nutritious smoothies for distribution to beneficiaries of Caritas social grocery stores.

A successful partnership since 2009

Our partnership with Caritas goes back a long way. Since 2009, Pluxee Luxembourg has been supporting the association by organizing a collection of meal vouchers which are donated to Caritas social grocery stores. This collaboration enables Caritas to provide balanced meals and meet the food needs of many families. In 2024, the program will be fully digitized, and donations of paper meal vouchers will be replaced by donations of Pluxee Lunch cards.

In 15 years, over €295,000 in meal vouchers have been collected.

An impactful volunteering initiative

This year, our employees wanted to do things differently, by contributing with their hands - or rather, their blenders! Working together on a common project, they prepared smoothies using fresh fruit and healthy ingredients. The idea was to offer a nutritious and tasty drink to the beneficiaries of Caritas social groceries, while creating a moment of sharing and conviviality. Smoothie recipe booklets were simultaneously distributed to beneficiaries so that they could reproduce them at home.

The action took place in a warm and supportive atmosphere. Our teams were not only able to develop their culinary skills, but also had the opportunity to get closer to the beneficiaries of the social groceries and better understand the daily realities they face. This enriching experience strengthened the bonds between employees and underlined the importance of mutual aid and sharing.

Moving towards 100% digitalized action in 2024

For 2024, Pluxee Luxembourg is planning a new stage within its partnership with Caritas. We are launching a 100% digitized campaign as part of our continuous improvement and digitalization drive. Thanks to this new approach, we hope to achieve the same level of success as that achieved with paper vouchers.

Beneficiaries will be able to make a donation via the dedicated page on the Caritas website, by entering their surname, first name and e-mail address. The donation will be made as for a classic online transaction with the Pluxee Lunch card, or via Apple Pay or Google Pay. This innovative solution will simplify the donation process and offer a smoother, more modern user experience.

A final word

Volunteering with Caritas is also part of our "Stop Hunger" initiatives. At Pluxee, we are committed to fighting hunger and improving access to healthy food for all. The "Stop Hunger" program is originally a global initiative of the Sodexo Group to eradicate hunger worldwide. Various actions are carried out around the world to support this cause, such as fundraising, food donations and nutrition programs. 

We are convinced that solidarity and support to people in need are essential values. Our partnership with Caritas and our volunteer initiatives are concrete proof of this. We're proud of our employees who help out every year, and of our ongoing commitment to a better future. Stay tuned for the launch of our new digital action in 2024!

We would like to extend our warmest thanks to Caritas for their hard work and dedication, and to all our employees for their commitment and generosity. Together, we make a difference.
