MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Garden Inn, the award-winning brand of upscale, yet affordable, hotels, and Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief organization, today announced the launch of Holidays with Heart, a seven-week long holiday campaign to help fight hunger in America. From November 18, 2012 through January 6, 2013, guests who book the Holidays with Heart room rate* will receive complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and Hilton Garden Inn will make a donation to Feeding America that will help provide 400,000 meals to families that need it most.

In the United States, one in five children is at risk of hunger. To provide families in need with access to nourishing meals, Hilton Garden Inn first partnered with Feeding America in June 2012 to launch Breakfast with Heart, the brand's first You Can Count on Us initiative, aimed at nurturing communities on their road to success. There were more than 31,000 rooms booked through the initial promotion.

"To reaffirm Hilton Garden Inn's commitment to help families in need, the brand re-launched the weekend stay promotion just in time for the holidays," said Judy Christa-Cathey, Vice President, Global Brand Marketing, Hilton Garden Inn. "By extending the holiday spirit to those who need it most, we believe we can create positive change for our communities through our hotels. We are excited to re-launch this successful promotion during the holidays when the season of giving is upon us."

With more than 200 food bank locations, Feeding America serves 37 million people each year. Feeding America's food banks also secure and distribute more than three billion pounds of food and grocery products each year through food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and after-school programs.

"We are proud to team with Hilton Garden Inn again to continue to make an impact when it comes to fighting hunger in this country," said Maura Daly, Chief Communications and Programs Officer. "Thanks to Hilton Garden Inn, we have an opportunity to continue to raise awareness about hunger in America and to help provide meals to those in need."

You Can Count on Us is one of the many ways Hilton Garden Inn delivers on Hilton Worldwide's commitment to Travel with Purpose and helps increase the economic and social benefits the company brings to its backyard communities.
