Corporate Social Responsibility

Feeding Forward

Feeding Forward is MGM Resorts’ Signature Corporate Social Responsibility Program, focused on feeding more people and wasting less food. We will lead the way, inspiring people and businesses to join the fight against food insecurity and food waste.

In 2007, MGM Resorts played a central role in the founding of Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only Food Bank.

Since 2010, MGM employees have volunteered more than 49,000 hours to food-related causes and have donated more than 3.3 million pounds of non-perishable food to charity.

In 2016, the Company launched what is currently the flagship portion of the Feeding Forward program: an innovative food donations process with Three Square Food Bank.

Food Donations

In 2016, in partnership with Three Square Food Bank, the Company launched the flagship portion of the Feeding Forward program: an innovative food donations process that simultaneously combats food waste and food insecurity at scale. This food donation process was first introduced at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas when unserved food from catered events was rescued, frozen and then safely donated to people in need. Since then, the process has expanded to include food from additional sources including warehouses, kitchens and minibar operations, and now encompasses multiple food types.

Since our food donations effort began, MGM Resorts has donated over 500,000 pounds of food or approximately 415,000 meals to the Las Vegas community. This food has been distributed to over 40 different hunger relief agencies (such as Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, MLK Senior Center, etc.) who help serve the 279,000 food insecure people in Southern Nevada.

By 2020, we have a goal to donate 1.7 million pounds or over 1.4 million meals. We will achieve this by continuing to expand our food donations efforts across more resorts and food types, in Las Vegas and beyond.

A Message from our Leaders

We have unified our pioneering diversity and inclusion, community engagement and environmental sustainability initiatives under the comprehensive platform of Inspiring Our World. This measure promotes greater synergies among these pillars, and solidifies their integration with our Company culture and our overarching values of Integrity, Teamwork and Excellence.

As much as our responsibility expresses our sense of moral obligation, we are keenly aware that our social responsibility initiatives will enhance our global competitiveness and position our Company for long-term economic growth. Our ability to survive and prosper is of course dependent upon our preservation of the invaluable resources of this great Earth. It is simply elemental that environmental sustainability is the foundation of humanity’s future. Sustainability in our operations and practices is a catalyst to business efficiency and effectiveness, and ultimately higher margins.

Likewise, more than ever, innovation is the driver of competitive success in the 21st century. The key to game-changing innovation—the creation of not just better performance but also iconic excellence—lies in the vast reservoir of talent of our extraordinary employees, and our realization of the full potential of their creativity. Diversity, inclusion, teamwork, leadership and engagement—they are all potent factors in the continuous improvement and progressive thinking that nurture innovation. As noted business strategist Lawrence M. Miller so aptly put it, “Excellence is not an accomplishment. It is a spirit, a never-ending process.”

At the same time, we are more than a mere corporate fixture in the communities where we operate—we are a vital, enduring part of the living fabric of our locales and regions. Our community framework, physical and social, shapes the quality of our lives and our customer experience. Contributions we make to strengthen our communities today are investments in our shared future of tomorrow.

We are excited to present to you our ambition, our inspiration and our accomplishments. We are proud of our gains, but readily acknowledge that our work is far from done. Our challenge is to continually find new ways to weave our responsibility commitment into actionable strategies—to perpetuate our business, our communities and our circle of humanity for generations to come. We welcome you on our journey as we seek to Inspire Our World.
