Ala Moana Hotel is teaming up with the Hawaii Foodbank for an annual promotion designed to help fight hunger in the islands.
Through April 3, clients staying at the hotel get a free buffet breakfast when they contribute six cans or five pounds of food in unopened, non-perishable bags, such as rice.
Guests can make donations on multiple days during their stay. Each day they donate, they will receive one coupon per room for breakfast at the hotel's in-house eatery, Plantation Cafe.
"The Hawaii Foodbank is truly grateful to businesses such as the Ala Moana Hotel that offer incentives to make a difference in the lives of hungry islanders," said Hawaii Foodbank development director Polly Kauahi.
The Hawaii Foodbank is the only nonprofit agency on Oahu that collects, stores and distributes mass quantities of both perishable and non-perishable food to help feed Hawaii's hungry. Last year, it distributed more than 11 million pounds of food to more than 183,000 islanders in need.
According to Ala Moana Hotel's sales and marketing director Marty Milan, the Honolulu-based property has been supporting the Hawaii Foodbank for the past 25 years.
"We hope that this free breakfast promotion motivates our guests to help play a role in feeding Hawaii's hungry," said Milan. "The opportunity to receive a free morning meal, coupled with room rates starting at $119, makes a stay with us an especially exceptional value."
