THE WHITE HOUSE RECOGNIZES FIRST OF ITS KIND, NEWLY LAUNCHED

Food Rescue Alliance The Venetian Reosrt Las Vegas

‘FOOD RESCUE ALLIANCE’ PROGRAM, A COLLABORATION BY THE VENETIAN RESORT LAS VEGAS AND THE JUST ONE PROJECT

LAS VEGAS – Launched in late 2023, Food Rescue Alliance, a
collaboration with The Venetian Resort Las Vegas and The Just One
Project is a first-of-its-kind initiative that is innovating
large-scale food rescue by introducing a streamlined process that allows
fresh, healthy, prepared meals to immediately impact the lives of those
challenged with food insecurity in Las Vegas. While The Venetian Resort
has been at the forefront of food rescue since 2014, this new
partnership will allow for a 100% increase in fresh meals donated to the
community annually.

The Food Rescue Alliance was spotlighted during a White House briefing
on Feb. 27, when Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff praised Americans from
all across the country for their valiant participation in the White
House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities by 2030.
This goal, set by President Biden in 2022, has received to date $1.7
billion in new commitments from partnerships. The Venetian Resort and
The Just One Project’s Food Rescue Alliance program was one of only
three initiatives out of 141 Emhoff highlighted during the briefing.  

“The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is committed to helping its community
members in need and to underscore our dedication to social
responsibility, we’re honored to partner with The Just One Project to
further eliminate hunger in our community,” said Patrick Nichols,
president and chief executive officer of The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
“Our Team Members saw an opportunity to increase our food donation
efforts after large conventions and tradeshows, and we knew it was
something we had to do. The Food Rescue Alliance collaboration will more
than double the number of healthy meals that are accessible to
individuals and families in our community. It is a program that makes us
all very proud to be Venetians.”

The strategic convention-to-table program was created around the sustainable
concept of food rescue takes the surplus of fresh food from numerous
catered events on the property including tradeshows, conventions, and
meetings, to provide community members, served by The Just One Project,
with direct access to safely stored and packaged meals. This
alliance allows The Venetian Resort to significantly increase the number
of meals rescued on the property each year and further support The Just One
Project’s efforts to provide relief to Southern Nevadans who are
experiencing food insecurity.  

“Through our mission of building a stronger, healthier, and more
connected community, we’re always looking to collaborate on
large-scale programs to increase our impact on the lives of the one in
eight Southern Nevadans who are challenged with food insecurity every
day. To team up with a partner like The Venetian Resort, where we’re
working together shoulder-to-shoulder, is a dream come true, and it’s
so exciting to know that this is just the beginning of an innovative new
program that can act as a roadmap for other organizations and
communities. We hope to inspire other organizations to join our food
rescue alliance, because we all our stronger together” says Brooke
Neubauer, CEO and founder of The Just One Project.

 The Just One Project currently provides services to over 20,000
individuals each month. The Food Rescue Alliance program will continue
to announce additional community activations and volunteer opportunities
in 2024. To learn more about The Venetian Resort and The Just One
