MGM Resorts donating leftover food to Las Vegas charities

What happens to all the leftover food on the Strip?

“It’s the most common question I get on any tour of the warehouse,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank.

Until recently, most of the unused banquet food from all MGM Resorts International properties was sent to a North Las Vegas pig farm, which was sold in late 2016. That included excess food that remained in heated storage units and was never even presented to customers.

“Those (were) the best fed pigs in the United States,” joked Phyllis James, the company’s chief diversity and corporate responsibility officer, on Wednesday.

James and several other MGM Resorts executives were at Three Square to announce an initiative that will help bring that food to people.
