Sodexo has been named the foodservice provider for the Marine Corps Marathon and its surrounding weekend of events. Under the agreement, Sodexo will provide breakfast for 700 people, lunch for 900, 5,100 boxed lunches for the Marines working the event, 27,000 hospitality bags for runners and catering services to the marathon VIP tent.
Taking place October 26th, the Marine Corps Marathon—also known as “The People’s Marathon”—brings together runners from all walks of life to participate in the race. The event also encompasses family activities and the Healthy Kids’ Fun Run, which Sodexo has co-sponsored since 2003, that is an educational effort designed to teach youngsters about the importance of exercise and healthy food choices.
Sodexo has been the foodservice provider to the United States Marine Corps since 2002, managing all mess halls on USMC bases throughout the continental United States.
