Want to do good with all those OpenTable Dining Rewards points you’ve accrued? In honor of Giving Tuesday, you can use them to help end childhood hunger. We’re pleased to announce that OpenTable diners once again have the opportunity to donate their OpenTable dining points to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that is ending childhood hunger through effective programs that provide kids with the food they need. Last year’s results were astounding — more than 23 million points were donated, helping to provide more than 1.25 million meals to children in need.
Donations made today through Monday, December 10, 2018, will benefit the No Kid Hungry® campaign. Every 100 points donated can provide a child in need with up to five healthy meals. To deepen the impact of this effort, OpenTable will match donations up to 250,000 meals.
“One in six children in the U.S. live with hunger,” said Debbie Shore, Co-founder of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “Hunger 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.”
To donate points, simply visit your profile page to view your points and select “Donate Your Points.” From there, you’ll have an opportunity to donate a portion or all of your points in support of No Kid Hungry. For more information, please visit nokidhungry.org/onedollar.
“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 Andrea Johnston, Chief Revenue Officer at OpenTable. “Following the huge success of our partnership with No Kid Hungry last year, we, along with our restaurant partners, hope to inspire people to join this movement so that together, we can make a real impact toward ending hunger this holiday season.”
After you donate your points, tell us here or over on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter using the hashtags #GivingTuesday + #NoKidHungry + #PointsforKids — and be sure to tag OpenTable.
