Hilton Garden Inn joins anti-hunger effort

Published 7:08 pm Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Hilton Garden Inn and Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, recently launched Breakfast with Heart, a campaign to help fight hunger in America.

Through Sept. 30, guests booking the Breakfast with Heart room rate at a Hilton Garden Inn in Suffolk will receive cooked-to-order breakfast included in the room rate. In support of Breakfast with Heart, Hilton Garden Inn will make a donation to Feeding America that will help provide one million meals to families that need it most.

In the United States, one in five children is at risk of hunger. This summer, 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.

Through Breakfast with Heart, Hilton Garden Inn is dedicating its summer promotion to help children and families have access to nourishing meals and help fill this nutrition gap.

Breakfast with Heart is the first initiative of You Can Count on Us, Hilton Garden Inn’s signature community relations program to nourish and nurture communities on their road to success. Through this commitment, Suffolk’s Hilton Garden Inns aim to be part of the effort to help provide food, shelter and comfort to those in need locally and in surrounding communities.

“We created You Can Count on Us to reflect the dependability and passion our team members demonstrate every day,” said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president of global brand marketing for Hilton Garden Inn. “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. We are excited to launch this first initiative in the United States with Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization.”

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.
