Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts continues to expand “Meals that Heal” – its food donation initiative to neighboring communities, daily wage earners and the less fortunate, as a way to support livelihoods amid the current economic crisis.
The “Meals that Heal” program, first introduced in June 2021, as part of the brand’s delivery platform; Flavors by Cinnamon – allows customers to be part of the brand’s drive to provide meals to communities. With every order placed through Flavors by Cinnamon, customers can top up their order value with a desired amount, which is directed to the fund to help serve communities. Additionally, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is pledging Rs. 100 with every order placed.
As a purpose-driven brand that believes in creating inspiring moments and enriching lives, especially those of the communities in which they operate, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is guided by this purpose in all aspects of its business, from the way they care for their people, communities, and the planet, to their commitment to building an inclusive culture.
General Manager of Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo and Cinnamon Grand Colombo, Mr. Kamal Munasinghe said, “Guided by one of our core values of caring for our people and our communities,”Meals that heal is a project we are proud to continue with the goal of making a difference in our communities by helping them recover and rebuild as we navigate these difficult times together. We have successfully donated over 10,000 meals to communities so far and intend to continue this initiative as a long-term brand project. While we look forward to the support of our customers and guests to further strengthen this project, we are extremely grateful to our loyal Flavors by Cinnamon clientele for stepping forward to contribute to this worthy cause.
This unique community CSR initiative was first introduced during the pandemic to support the economically disadvantaged while allowing customers to be part of the brand’s drive to provide meals to communities. Since the start of the project, Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts has donated to neighboring communities, flood victims, healthcare workers and children’s orphanages with the support of organizations and partners such as Union Assurance, the Red Cross of Sri Lanka and the Sri Lanka Police.
Meals that Heal is a great opportunity for clients who want to help bring joy to marginalized communities that have been hit hard by the current crisis in the country. After placing the food order on flavors.cinnamonhotels.com, customers have the option to click the “Donate Now” button before paying to contribute to the Meals that Heal project, which will automatically be added to their total bill. The contribution paid will be used for the Meals that Heal project fund.
