Rejoice Katniss and Peeta. While the Capital might have its version of the Hunger Games, our ten districts are dedicated to insuring that hunger is as far from its guests and the community’s mind as survival is at the forefront in the hit trilogy and movie, The Hunger Games. Survival of the fittest is the name of the game for Suzanne Collins and her Hunger Games characters, but here survival of the savory is more like it for Distinctive Inns of New England who have created culinary packages insuring that hunger is not a concern for travelers or those in their communities. Each of the seven No Hunger Games packages created by members of Distinctive Inns of New England offer luxury accommodations (no sleep syrup needed there!) sumptuous hand crafted breakfasts and afternoon refreshments which guests need not fight to the finish for. Best of all, to insure that no one in the community has to fight hunger, each package benefits a local food pantry or no-hunger cause in the towns and regions where the inns are located.
