Mövenpick gives back with Kilo of Kindness programme

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has launched its annual Kilo of Kindness charitable programme, an initiative to encourage guests, visitors and members of the community to donate one kilogram of food, clothing and school supplies for those in need.

Taking part in Australia are Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer and Mövenpick Hotel Hobart, where guests and visitors are invited to drop off donations throughout October, and the collected items will be shared with local families in need through Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia.

Along with 65 other Mövenpick properties across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, the initiative looks to gather a global goal of 25,000 kilograms of donations.

Kishan Chandnani, global vice president, Premium Brands shared: “Through uncertain times, it’s important to come together to spread kindness to where it is needed most; that’s the core premise behind Kilo of Kindness.

“Building on our culinary heritage, we know food has the power to do good and be a medium for positive change. With our annual Kilo of Kindness programme, we believe in indulging in heartfelt moments and finding the goodness in the social change we can make by giving back.”

Since 2015, approximately 71,457 kilograms of supplies have been donated and distributed to disadvantaged communities around the world. Mövenpick hopes to make its 2022 campaign the most successful to date by surpassing its current donation record of 21,921 kilograms and aiming to secure 25,000 kilograms.
