Every “Giveback Getaway” stay will help feed an underprivileged family for a month

23 February 2021 – The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore has launched a  meaningful “Giveback Getaway” stay initiative whereby the hotel will make a donation to The Food Bank Singapore with each “Giveback Getaway” room booking sold, enabling a registered underprivileged family to withdraw food rations, hot food and other essential items for a month  via the Food Pantry 2.0 initiative.  

The Food Pantry 2.0 by The Food Bank Singapore is an automated platform that dispenses  emergency food aid 24/7 to those in need. Eligible beneficiaries will receive “Bank Cards”  preloaded with credits which will enable them to withdraw meals from any of the eleven Food  Pantry vending machines located in the heartlands around Singapore. Each of these vending  machines are stocked with food essentials like rice, oil, beverages, canned food, biscuits and  even hot food. Some also dispense basic hygiene items such as toothbrushes and toothpaste,  shampoo and laundry detergent.  

The Ritz-Carlton has always had a cornerstone guiding principle of striving to make a difference  in the communities where we operate. Under the umbrella of our Community Footprints  Program, The Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Resorts partner with local organisations to benefit the  well-being of children, provide hunger and poverty relief, and advocate environmental  responsibility. 

“The fallout from the global pandemic has undoubtedly increased food insecurity in our  community, and we wanted to inspire a charitable response among our guests to impact the lives  of the less fortunate. We have chosen to partner with The Food Bank Singapore to help uplift the 300,000 individuals that their good work supports, and hope to inspire our guests to join us in  this meaningful endeavour.” said Mr. Peter Mainguy, General Manager.  

Ms. Nichol Ng, Co-founder of The Food Bank Singapore adds, “This is our first collaboration  with a hospitality group, where guests have the option of doing good while still enjoying a staycation – a luxury that not everyone can afford. Every donation received enables us to do that  much more for each beneficiary under our care, and we are grateful to The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia  Singapore for coming up with this wonderful idea.” 

The “Giveback Getaway” room package is priced from SGD 490 per night and must be booked  by 11 May 2021, for stays valid until 29 December 2021. For room reservations, please visit  www.ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/singapore/offers/giveback, call 65.6434.5111 or email  rc.sinrz.reservations@ritzcarlton.com. An advanced reservation of five days is required. Flexible cancellation of up to 48 hours prior to arrival is allowed. 

The package includes overnight accommodation with a complimentary upgrade to a Deluxe  Marina room, plus a delectable breakfast for two the next morning. For every package booked,  the hotel will make a donation to The Food Bank Singapore towards their Food Pantry 2.0 scheme, which will help feed one registered underprivileged family for a month. Singaporeans  may also redeem their SingaporeRediscovers vouchers towards this package on the designated  booking platforms.
