ATLANTA —InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has launched a global partnership to support food banks and other food-provision charities in assisting those most in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
This new announcement extends the company’s program for communities and charitable giving, True Hospitality for Good, by committing funding and support in local communities where they are most vulnerable.
The program will help protect and enhance food-bank infrastructure and services in more than 70 countries. This support will ensure that food banks and food-distribution sites have access to the funds, training and resources they need, as more and more people rely on their help during the current crisis.
“We can all see the impact that Coronavirus continues to have around the world on communities, businesses and our lives. Taking care of others is the very essence of who we all are in hospitality and working with our colleagues, owners and charity partners to offer food, supplies and safe accommodation is a natural way for us to be there for our local communities in these difficult times,” says Keith Barr, CEO, IHG.
