Dine at a Marriott-branded Hotel in May and help tackle youth unemployment

Throughout the month of May, Marriott-branded hotels in Europe will donate £1 or €1 (or equivalent) for every lunch and dinner served at participating hotels* as part of a Europe-wide ‘You Eat, We Give’ campaign established by Marriott to raise funds to help tackle youth unemployment. 

The promotion is part of Marriott’s Europe-wide “World of Opportunity” initiative, which helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds reach their full potential by providing employment skills and vocational opportunities. In the UK, Marriott’s funding will enable youth charity The Prince’s Trust to run employability courses for vulnerable young people and in Continental Europe the funds will provide vocational training and scholarships through SOS Children’s Villages’ Youth Programme.

“The ‘You Eat, We Give’ promotion is a way for us to show our commitment to helping young people in Europe find meaningful employment. Giving back to our community is at the heart of the Marriott culture and the way we do business. We look forward to welcoming guests into our hotels for a great meal while showing support to the young people in our communities,” said Reiner Sachau, chief operations officer for Marriott International in Europe.

Throughout May, diners can also sample a limited edition dessert created by Marriott culinary apprentices, who have been encouraged to submit creative pudding ideas that include the seasonal fruit – strawberries.  The winning creation will be served at all participating Marriott-branded hotel restaurants for a month.

Marriott's commitment to society blends corporate financial contributions with in-kind giving and volunteering.  The company participates in efforts to provide shelter, food, and children's health, while creating career opportunities for associates in the workplace and supporting education in the hospitality industry.  In Europe last year, Marriott’s charitable contributions totalled more than €1.8 million in cash and in-kind donations and nearly 50,000 hours of volunteer time. 

*The 131 participating hotels include 54 hotels in the UK and 77 hotels in mainland Europe.
