MGM Resorts International and Nevada Public Radio Members Team Up to Provide Nearly 105,000 Meals to Three Square Food Bank

A collaboration between Three Square Food Bank, MGM Resorts International (MGM Resorts) and Nevada Public Radio results in 104,305 meals donated to people in Southern Nevada who are food insecure. According to Feeding America, currently one in eight Nevadans is affected by hunger.

During Nevada Public Radio’s 2019 fall membership campaign, new and renewing members had an option to donate meals to Three Square in lieu of receiving traditional thank you gifts, with MGM Resorts wholly covering the value of the donated meals. Upon completion of the campaign, 104,305 meals were provided by MGM Resorts to Three Square–Southern Nevada’s only food bank, which provides food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties.

“We were proud to be involved in this year’s Nevada Public Radio fall membership campaign to help combat food insecurity in the Las Vegas community,” said Jyoti Chopra, Chief Diversity and Sustainability Officer, MGM Resorts International. “For more than 20 years MGM Resorts has partnered with nonprofit organizations, providing resources and services to those in need. As we look ahead to the new year, let us continue to join forces through public-private partnerships and extend our reach and impact to serve more people in need in Nevada.”

“Every year, our neighbor organizations in Southern Nevada show their true colors with generosity and compassion,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square. “MGM Resorts and Nevada Public Radio members opened their hearts to the families that we feed, and we are honored and grateful for their kindness and contribution to the fight against food insecurity in our community.”

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’
Seventh annual event transformed Three Square headquarters into elegant social gathering in support of longstanding charitable campaign to benefit children in need


On Saturday, May 5, “Fashion for Three Square,” a special event underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation, transformed Three Square’s north campus, which ordinarily houses operations, volunteering, food rescue, warehousing and distribution, into a grand party venue. The gathering featured elegant décor, fashion models, entertainment and local culinary tastes as attendees supported the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign, now in its seventh year.

The event featured fashions by Etro, presented by Neiman Marcus, along with food provided by top Las Vegas restaurants including: Blue Ribbon, STK, Buddy V’s Ristorante, La Strega, Libertine Social and Carnevino. In addition, Three Square’s executive chef John Hilton and his team prepared live dishes at the food bank’s demonstration kitchen & atrium. One of Three Square’s storage coolers was converted into an ice bar, featuring Artisanal Foods and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. MGM Resorts International provided an array of sweet treats. The event also welcomed entertainment from Las Vegas-based soul singer Jessica Manalo; Strip headliners The Australian Bee Gees, who performed hits from one of the most successful acts in musical history, the Bee Gees; and students from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts.

Contributions made to Three Square’s Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which continues through May 31, will be used right here in Southern Nevada and will have double the impact thanks to a generous $500,000 contribution to match gifts toward the food bank’s goal to raise $2 million.

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports one of the most vulnerable populations in Southern Nevada, children. Proper nutrition for children is critical as hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges. One in four children in Southern Nevada live in households that are food insecure. Additionally, more than 62 percent of children in Clark County schools are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs. That’s more than 203,000 students.

In its 10th year fighting hunger, Three Square is able to provide three meals for every dollar donated to the food bank. Thanks to the support of matching sponsors throughout this campaign, Three Square will be able to provide six meals for every dollar donated.

To make a donation to Bag Childhood Hunger and for further information about Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, visit www.bagchildhunger.org or call 702.644.3663, ext. 334.

Urban Turban Has Summer Grilling Covered with
“Turbanator Chicken”

Summer means pool parties, picnics and BBQs, and Chief Turbanator and Owner Bhushan Arolkar and Chef and Owner Tarun Kapoor are making hosting a breeze with the new “Turbanator Chicken” range of products. Delivered straight to your doorstep and ready to throw on the grill, these meals save hours of prep work and cooking while leaving more time to enjoy the company of family and friends.

 

Available in classic Tandoori marinade or breast fillets marinated in lemon ‘n herb sauce, the “Turbanator Chicken” comes sealed in a five-pound pack starting at $32. Guests can choose between the pre-marinated chicken that’s perfect for home grilling or the pre-grilled chicken that’s fully cooked and ready to serve. Kick up the flavor even more with Urban Turban’s signature butter sauce or BBQ mayo sauce, and make it a full meal by adding sides including fresh garden greens or pickled onion rings.

 

Order ahead and pick up at the restaurant’s Paradise Road location or save even more time by ordering delivery from urbanturbanparadise.mobilebytes.com.

About Urban Turban

The result is simple yet innovative dishes that incite love at first bite. The restaurant has been awarded “2016’s Best Las Vegas Heart-Healthy Restaurants” by Gayot, “Best Vegetarian Dish” by Bite of Las Vegas and most recently top two “Best Ethnic Food” in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” 2016.

ABOUT ANDRÉ ROCHAT
Rochat was born in the French Alps where his family owned a charcuterie shop in the village of La Rochette. After learning the business—beginning at the age of five—he left home at 14 to apprentice at Leon de Lyon, the renowned Michelin two-star restaurant in the heart of Lyon.

In 1965, Rochat departed his native France, arriving in Boston with a set of knives in his suitcase and $5 in his pocket. After cooking at several East Coast, he eventually landed in Las Vegas. In 1973, he opened a successful business, Savoy French Bakery, after observing the absence of an authentic French boulangerie in Las Vegas.

In 1978, he purchased a 1930s-era house in downtown Las Vegas and transformed it into his eponymous restaurant, which reimagined the ambience of a French country inn.

As the only freestanding gourmet option at the time, Andre’s quickly became a hit with locals and tourists alike. The restaurant made such an impact, the city of Las Vegas honored Rochat for his contribution to the community by renaming the street to Chef André Rochat Place.

In 1997, Rochat opened a second location on the Strip, Andre’s Restaurant and Lounge at Monte Carlo. By 2001, he opened Alizé at the Top of Palms Casino Resort. In 2008 and 2009, both Alizé and Andre’s were recognized by the Michelin Guide with the one-star rating.

“I’m not a celebrity chef. I just love to cook,” says Rochat.

CenturyLink Las Vegas Announces Partnership with Three Square in Support of Nationwide Backpack Buddies Food Drive

CenturyLink Las Vegas Announces Partnership with Three Square
in Support of Nationwide Backpack Buddies Food Drive

Partnership and match program will raise up to $1 million to help fight hunger

CenturyLink Las Vegas will partner with local food bank, Three Square, June 1st through the 12th to help feed Southern Nevadans in need. CenturyLink will match up to $1 million from all food and monetary donations in association with Backpack Buddies, the company’s nationwide food drive program.

Food banks can purchase food at a lower cost per pound than the average person could at a store, estimated on average to equal six pounds of food per dollar. Based on this calculation, CenturyLink will donate $1 for every six pounds of food collected by the company’s employees and community members. All food and monetary donations made online, in person, and via mail during the time period will count towards the match donation.

“CenturyLink is proud to partner with Southern Nevada’s largest hunger-relief organization,” says Jeremy Ferkin, Operations VP of CenturyLink. “Our staff members are taking on the challenge to beat last year’s donation and are eager to contribute to this very important cause in our community.”

“Gifts like this are critical to our mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people in our area,” says Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square. “We are very thankful for community partners like CenturyLink who generously give back because they make a huge impact in the community; what would have been three meals from a $1 donation, will become six meals.”

According to 2014 statistics provided by Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, 46.5 million people in need across the United States, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors access emergency food from a food pantry one or more times a year. That means one in seven Americans now rely on Feeding America and its nationwide network of local food banks.
