Boyd Gaming Properties Come Together to Help Tackle Hunger in Southern Nevada


Team members from Suncoast Hotel & Casino, Cannery Casino Hotel and Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa participated in a Three Square Food Bank Volunteer Day to help tackle the ongoing hunger program in Southern Nevada.

Three Square Food Bank’s mission is to provide wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. Clark County is home to approximately 98 percent of the total food-insecure population in Southern Nevada. During the 2021-2022 fiscal year, Three Square distributed more than 42 million meals, the equivalent of more than 51 million pounds of food and grocery product, through their community partners.

To help fight to end hunger, 34 volunteers from the three Boyd Gaming properties combined efforts to pack 8,400 backpacks with meals in two hours! Some of the nonperishable items that were distributed were Animal Crackers, GoGo Squeez, Kellogg’s Nutri Grain Cereal Bars, Spaghetti O’s, Sweet Corn, Tuna Salad and more.

Elma Pagaduan, Team Member Relations Manager at Aliante, said “It’s an amazing feeling to help others in need, especially children! It was an incredible achievement for all three properties to come together as one to exceed the Company’s goal of 30 volunteers. Thank you, Three Square Food Bank, for the opportunity to help those in our community find their next meal.”
