Omni Hotels & Resorts Says Goodnight to Hunger
Since launching the Say Goodnight to Hunger program in June 2016, every booking made directly on OmniHotels.com, Omni Hotels & Resorts has made a donation to Feeding America® that provides a family of four dinner for an entire week.* Just two months following the launch of Say Goodnight to Hunger, more than three million meals have been donated to help Feeding America provide more than 18.2 million meals each year for food banks to feed kids, families and seniors in communities across the United States. Already more than 40 Omni properties are actively participating by supporting food banks and pantries in local markets served by the properties. During the past two months, 900-plus Omni associates have volunteered almost 2,500 hours of their time, talent, and compassion to help this important mission in their communities.
"Say Goodnight to Hunger is the perfect way to bring together our guests and associates to collectively address an issue that is pervasive throughout our nation, including in the local communities in which our company operates," said Mike Deitemeyer, president for Omni Hotels & Resorts.
More than 42 million Americans live with limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food, including 13 million children. One in seven Americans relies on food banks to feed themselves and their families. To help combat this national problem, Omni Hotels & Resorts is partnering with Feeding America, a nationwide network of 200 food banks that provides food and services to more than 46 million people annually, to make a meaningful impact in communities across the country.
Omni is committed to helping the local communities in which we are located, so these donations will directly benefit food banks in the 42 communities where Omni Hotels & Resorts’ 60 properties operate. Bookings must be made directly at OmniHotels.com to apply and one donation will be made for each booking transaction.
Through this program, Omni hopes to Say Goodnight to Hunger for good.
