All attendees will receive a ResortSuite-sponsored FEED Bag. The proceeds for each bag supplies 10 meals for the World Food Programme.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give back as a part of our annual event by partnering with FEED and ResortSuite,” ISPA President Lynne McNees said. “FEED’s initiative to provide meals to children through the World Food Programme is a valuable contribution that we are now able to share with our industry. We are proud to work with ResortSuite, a long time supporter of ISPA and the spa community.”

ResortSuite is a hospitality software company used by some of the most prestigious spas, clubs, hotels and resorts in the world. All ResortSuite software is “guest-centric” in technology design, allowing hospitality properties such as spas, clubs, golf courses, ski lodges and more to be run more efficiently.

“ResortSuite is thrilled to be associated with FEED and support this meaningful cause at the ISPA Conference & Expo this year,” ResortSuite Founder and CEO Frank Pitsikalis said. “We have been involved with ISPA for many years and are honored to make a direct contribution to those in need through our sponsorship.”

FEED is a social business with a mission to create good products that help feed the world. Lauren Bush Lauren founded FEED in 2007 after she traveled around the world and witnessed the effects of hunger firsthand as a student ambassador with the World Food Programme.

Every product sold has a measurable donation attached to it. FEED has been able to provide more than 84 million meals globally through the WFP and Feeding America. FEED has also supported nutrition programs around the world, providing more than three and a half million children with Vitamin A supplements through UNICEF.

“I am so appreciative of ISPA and ResortSuite for their decision to make a huge difference in the lives of children and families around the world through giving FEED bags at the ISPA Conference & Expo,” Lauren said. “It’s exciting to know that everyone will leave with a bag that gave 10 meals and that collectively, 1,700 meals were donated. On behalf of FEED, thank you!”
