CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Extended Stay America has donated $5,000 to No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end child hunger in America. From Oct. 16-19, Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival attendees were encouraged to post photos to social media, live from a pop-up ESA hotel room, alongside Food Network Host Sunny Anderson, using #cookwithESA.
“Aligning with initiatives like No Kid Hungry is an important demonstration of Extended Stay America’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and serve,” said Tom Seddon, chief marketing officer at Extended Stay America. “We’re proud to contribute to the campaign alongside the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival.”
Attendees at the ESA pop-up hotel room also received Extended Stay America’s in-room cookbook, including travel-friendly recipes created by Anderson that can be whipped-up in an ESA kitchen. “Creating recipes for Extended Stay America’s cookbook is one of my favorite projects because it allows me to do what I love—share simple, affordable meals that can be made by everyday cooks like me,” Anderson said.
