Hilton Garden Inn is partnering with hunger-relief organization Feeding America to provide meals to needy families as part of its summer-long “Breakfast with Heart” campaign.
Through Sept. 30, customers who book the promotional room rate will receive a cooked-to-order breakfast and the Mclean, Va.-based hotel chain will make a donation to Feeding America that will help provide one million meals.
This is the first initiative of “You Can Count on Us,” Hilton Garden Inn's new community relations program. Through this commitment, Hilton Garden Inn aims to help provide food, shelter and comfort to communities in which there are locations.
"By extending the spirit of hospitality to those who need it most, we believe we can create positive change for our hotels and our communities,” said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president, global brand marketing, Hilton Garden Inn, in a statement.
With more than 200 member food banks, Feeding America serves 37 million people each year. Feeding America's food banks secure and distribute three billion pounds of donated food and grocery products each year through food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and after-school programs.
In the United States, one in five children is at risk of hunger. Hilton timed the promotion to run during the summer when nearly 18 million children will be at greater risk of hunger while they are out of school and don't have access to free or reduced-priced lunches.
“You can Count on Us” is part of the the hotel chain’s parent company Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to “Travel with Purpose,” which is geared to increasing the economic and social benefits the company brings to its backyard communities.
