Omni Hotels Says Goodnight to Hunger

DALLAS—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 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 America’s hungry.”

To show support, guests are encouraged to use the hashtag #SayGoodnightToHunger.
