The Sheraton Oklahoma City Downtown Hotel supported “Feed the Funnel” to help end hunger in Oklahoma City.
The Sheraton Oklahoma City Downtown Hotel, managed by Crescent Hotels and Resorts, celebrates community service by holding a "Feed the Funnel" event to help the Kaleo Foundation.
Located in Oklahoma City, the hotel is conveniently next to the Myriad Gardens, across from the Chesapeake Energy Arena, and just a few short blocks from the Bricktown Entertainment District. Featuring over 20,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including the new One Broadway Ballroom, the hotel is one of the top choices in the city. The Aria Lounge, located off the lobby of the hotel offers a selection of southwest flavors and local beers on tap. And the newly renovated Block 23 and Patio is open and ready to serve you for breakfast and lunch.
On July 12, 2018, the team at the Sheraton kicked off their "Feed the Funnel" party and packed 10,000 meal bags in under 1 Hour. These bags have gone one to help the Kaleo Foundation feed 40,000 neighbors in need. The Sheraton OKC, along with the Kaleo Foundation's overall goal aligns with the founding group of the "Feed the Funnel" packing parties, The Pack Shack. Together we want to increase awareness about hunger issues affecting Oklahomans, provide our citizens with food and to encourage our team members to get involved and spend a day in service. When the gong rang to start the race to the 10,000 Bag finish line, the volunteers at the Sheraton worked in teams to fill each bag with the nutritious items to complete a bag that will go one to feed 4 people 2 meals each. While the day started as a competition, the Sheraton Staff rallied together to complete the challenge and left feeling a sense of accomplishment and pride.
