Fighting Poverty, Strengthening Communities

HMSHost is passionate about giving back to the communities in which it operates. HMSHost Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was created with the mission to fight poverty with food, shelter, education and workforce development opportunities..

Our associates reach out every day to the communities in which we operate through food donations, composting and other sustainability initiatives, educational outreach and support, relief effort donations, and other such activities. Through their dedication and passion, they have become a supportive force leading positive change for those in need. But we recognized that HMSHost, as an industry leader in food & beverage for travel venues, can do more. By joining with our partners, we can take these initiatives even further. HMSHost Foundation was created to do just that.

HMSHost Foundation directs charitable investments based on four pillars of giving:

Honor our veterans and their families by supporting programs that meet their needs for food, shelter, medical care, and job training and placement


HMSHost Foundation works to support the communities we share with you by donating funds and resources, and volunteering time toward making a strong impact to not only fight poverty, but to prevent it. We aim to provide this support through fundraising events and initiatives such as the Canister Program and Airport Restaurant Month as well as events with our corporate partners like the Chef’s Table Gala and the annual HMSHost Foundation Golf Classic.


We strive to take the money we’ve raised through our fundraising programs and make a difference in the local communities in which we operate by giving back to organizations that align with our mission. In 2017 alone we awarded 45 grants in 22 states and the District of Columbia.
