Alayna Khan Receives Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation Youth Grant to Fight Childhood Hunger on Global Youth Service Day 2021
Jamaica, Queens – Alayna Khan, a 7th grade student of Scholars Academy, community activist and Baisley Pond Park Block Association junior member since 2014 from Jamaica, Queens has been awarded a Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation Youth Grant through Youth Service America (YSA). The grant will support Khan in leading a community service project that addresses the issue of childhood hunger.
In 2019, 34 million people lived in poverty in America. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, 1 in 6 people (more than 50 million people), including 1 in 4 children (approximately 17 million children) in the United States are experiencing food insecurity in 2021. A 2019 report by the Food Bank for New York City, found that Community District 12, which represents Hollis, Jamaica, and St. Albans, has the highest levels of food insecurity. This is a problem that can be solved, and young people are a part of the solution. Youth-led activities will take place on Global Youth Service Day, April 23-25, 2021.
“My goal is to assemble a volunteer team to fundraise at least $500 for the Bethel Gospel Church food pantry. This project is critical because no child should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from,” said Khan, “I would like to thank Sodexo for giving me this amazing opportunity to make an impact in my community.”

Alayna Khan is 1 of 106 young leaders across the country awarded grants to organize projects to help end childhood hunger and bring awareness to food insecurities facing children across our nation today. Grantees will educate and mobilize their peers around the issue to help end childhood hunger through awareness, service, advocacy, and philanthropic activities.
They join millions of other young people around the world as part of Global Youth Service Day, April 23-25, 2021.
Celebrating 33 years of youth changing the world, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) is the largest youth service and civic action event in the world. “The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation is committed to identifying, investing in and scaling innovative, youth-designed and youth-led solutions to childhood hunger,” explained Joan Rector McGlockton, Chairperson, Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation and Associate General Counsel, Corporate Affairs & Litigation.
“I am humbled by the quality and volume of applications we receive each year,” said Roxanne Moore, Executive Director, Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation. “Helping and supporting these youth grantees - ordinary people that make themselves extraordinary - brings the Stop Hunger Foundation closer to its objective of working toward zero hunger in the U.S. By investing in their efforts on GYSD, we hope to ignite the passion in other young people to join the fight against child hunger.”
Youth Service America (YSA) believes that youth, communities and democracy thrive when we all work together for the common good. YSA is a leading global nonprofit that activates young people, ages 5-25, to find their voice, take action, and acquire powerful civic and 21st Century skills as they solve problems facing their communities. YSA supports its activation campaigns – including September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance, MLK Day of Service, and Global Youth Service Day - with grants, training and resources, and recognition programs for young people and their adult champions. Youth-led projects use Awareness, Service, Advocacy, and Philanthropy (ASAP) strategies to create social and environmental change. For more information, visit www.YSA.org.
The Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation works with and through partners to help end childhood hunger in the United States because no child should be hungry today or risk being hungry again tomorrow. Sodexo, Inc., which funds all administrative costs, and the nonprofit Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, mobilize experts, innovators, volunteers and donors to feed children; to advocate for policies to end childhood hunger; and to implement innovative potential solutions, particularly those designed by youth.
