Beginning today, November 27, 2018, OpenTable diners can choose to donate their dining points to provide nutritious meals to children struggling with hunger in America. Every 100 points donated can provide a child in need with five healthy meals. The campaign will extend through Monday, December 10, 2018. Following a highly successful donation campaign last year, OpenTable has committed to match donations for up to 250,000 meals to deepen the impact of this effort.
“This holiday season, we are encouraging our diners to give back to those who do not know when they’ll receive their next meal,” said Alisa Weiner, Vice President of Marketing at OpenTable. “Following the huge success of our partnership with No Kid Hungry last year resulting in 1.25 million meals donated, we, along with our restaurant partners, hope to inspire consumers to join this movement so that together, we can make a real impact and help hungry children this holiday season.”
“One in six children in the U.S. live with hunger, which can have devastating consequences for their health and wellbeing. We’re grateful to be partnering with OpenTable this holiday season to help feed kids in need,” said Debbie Shore, Co-founder of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “By simply donating their points, diners can make a huge impact in the lives of children across the country. Just 100 points can provide five meals to kids in need. Now that’s something to celebrate!”
To donate points, diners can simply visit their OpenTable profile pages to view their points and select “donate my points.” From there, diners will have an opportunity to donate a portion or all their points to support No Kid Hungry. Donations will run between November 27, 2018 – December 10, 2018. For more information, please visit nokidhungry.org/onedollar.
