Two Valencia Hotel Group properties in Bryan College Station—The George, and Cavalry Court—recently partnered with Dorm Dish to help Aggie students who were in need of meals.

Called Feed Maroon, the idea for the program sparked out of a simple conversation among Carlos Pernia, director of food and beverage of the two hotels, Brian Hall, founder of the nonprofit Friday Harbour, and Austin Fanning, founder of Dorm Dish. A GoFundMe was organized by Dorm Dish to help generate funds to provide these meals. Within a matter of days, the money began flowing in.

The George, Cavalry Court and Dorm Dish provided microwavable dinners to the students, with Valencia Group’s catering service providing lunch. Meals were picked up at Cavalry Court’s onsite restaurant, The Canteen.

The Valencia Hotel Group is known for designing spaces that are not only located in desirable destinations but have become desirable destinations in and of themselves. Those spaces are augmented by the group’s renowned service culture that comes from having a well-trained, well-seasoned team of associates who are committed to the company’s emphasis on high-touch service.
