Does anyone know the reason that there is usually a statue of the fat "laughing buddha" in dining halls?

In all the Chinese temples & monasteries I have visited, there is always a statue of MI LEI FO (CHINESE) – HOTEI (JAPANESE) – MAITREYA (SANSKRIT) – in the Dining Hall. Someone explained the reason to me once but I can’t remember it now.
