Luxury Hotel Brand to Help Provide a Family of Four Dinner for an
Entire Week When Guests Book Direct on OmniHotels.com
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Just as Omni Hotels & Resorts says ‘goodnight’ to millions of guests
every year, the luxury hotel brand will now Say Goodnight to Hunger! Beginning
today, for every stay booked directly on the brand’s website,
OmniHotels.com, it will make a donation to Feeding America®
to provide a family of four dinner for an entire week.* Donations will
benefit Feeding America and local members in the 42 communities where
Omni Hotels & Resorts’ 60 properties are located.
Omni’s goal is 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. Say Goodnight to Hunger is
the largest campaign launched by a Feeding America hospitality partner.
“Say Goodnight to Hunger is an initiative I am personally proud
of, because it embodies one the core values of our organization, which
we call Local Market Leadership. We are committed to integrating into
the culture of each of our locations and caring for those communities,”
said Mike Deitemeyer, president for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Say
Goodnight to Hunger is a unique way to serve and support these local
communities in which our company operates.
Omni’s contribution to Feeding America is just one element of its
commitment to feeding families and reducing hunger nationwide.
Throughout the nation, Omni associates will generously give their
talent, time, and compassion to volunteer at food banks in their local
communities to amplify the impact of the Say Goodnight to Hunger
mission. Currently, almost one-third of Omni properties actively support
food banks in their local communities – from volunteering at facilities
and fundraising to holding food drives and gathering donations for their
local food banks. The Say Goodnight to Hunger program is a
natural extension of what is already happening across the hotel brand.
Today, more than 48 million Americans live in food insecure households,
including 15 million children. One in seven Americans is currently
served by Feeding America food banks, often facing difficult choices
between paying bills and buying food. Food banks often serve
hard-working individuals who are facing economic hardship.
“It isn’t getting any easier for the families we serve – one in seven
Americans is food insecure, including one in five children,” said Nancy
Curby, Vice President Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America. “This
new partnership with Omni Hotels will help us in our mission to feed
To show support, guests are encouraged to use the hashtag #SayGoodnightToHunger.
