Vail Resorts Employee Food Program
The EpicPromise Foundation partnered with local food banks in our communities to provide supplemental meals and groceries for employees at some resorts with below average snowfall in the early season.
We partnered with FIRC (Family Intercultural Resource Center) in Summit, CO; Our Community Foundation in Eagle County, CO; Christian Center in Park City, UT; Bread and Broth in South Lake Tahoe, CA; Project Mana in North Lake Tahoe, CA.
Over the course of the three week holiday period, the EpicPromise Foundation and nonprofit partners provided approximately 8,850 meals or bags of groceries to-go. Food was made available at Employee Centers, Employee dinners and distributed to departments as needed. Employee volunteers supported the program through bagging food, transporting food to distribution locations and administering food. While participating in the program, employees felt a first-connection to their fellow colleagues in need.
