With the cost of food rising, too many people struggle to access the nutritious food they need. Food banks like Philabundance and Feeding San Diego are committing to providing those nutritious options to the communities they serve but they need the support of the public to continue this work.

Jones Brown, Philabundance CEO. “We know Phillies fans like competition and always rise to the occasion, and in this challenge, they did just that
The final numbers for the challenge are:
Philabundance – $16,944
Feeding San Diego – $7,707
WE WON!!! Thank you to everyone who stepped up to help Strike Out Hunger!
The funds will not only help each city feed their communities, but the losing city’s food bank CEO will need to wear gear from the winning food bank.
