The United Gateway Card from Chase and United Airlines is giving back to neighbours in need through the launch of the “Gateway to Giving” campaign.
Championed by celebrity chef Carla Hall, the campaign aims to educate consumers on how to best support people facing hunger across the country during the holidays.
The initiative will provide a donation of $700,000 to Feeding America, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks.
Through this donation, Chase and United are providing nearly seven million meals to local food banks to help those struggling with hunger this holiday season.
“The holiday season looks a bit different this year”
Luc Bondar Vice President of Marketing and MileagePlus at United, said:
“There’s no doubt that the holiday season looks a bit different this year, and the need for giving back is more important than ever – and I’m proud of our commitment to the communities we serve in this respect.”
Chef Hall, of Food Network, Bravo’s Top Chef and ABC’s The Chew and Good Morning America, has a longstanding relationship with Feeding America and understands the gravity of the growing food crisis.
She will be inviting a select number of consumers to come to the (virtual) table on December 3rd to exchange holiday memories and discuss ways to support neighbors and create a sense of togetherness this holiday season.
