Sweet Dreams, Full Plates
Sweet Dreams, Full Plates is a campaign featuring local hotels in the Asheville area to engage hotel guests during their visit to make an impact on the community. With each donation, MANNA can help provide food to people across WNC. The campaign takes place throughout the month of September, coinciding with national Hunger Action Month.
Participating hotels engage hotel guests throughout the month of September to make an impact with their visit. Guest participation is simple: Hotel guests can choose to forgo stay-over services by placing a special door hanger on their room door handle. The special hanger says “We Fed A Family!” and for every room that chooses to participate, the hotel makes a $2 donation on their behalf. With each $2 donation, MANNA can help provide enough food for 8 meals to people across Western North Carolina.
The campaign started in 2017 and had years of great success. Sweet Dreams, Full Plates is currently on hold as the pandemic changed the way hotels operate and the model of this campaign needs to be reimagined.
