You have no doubt noticed the strength of the Atlanta Braves pitching staff, striking batters out every game, but they are also helping us with a different kind of strike out. The Braves and Kroger are partnering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help Strike Out Hunger. Before every Friday home game, if you donate 20 cans or $20 to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, you have the opportunity to have one item autographed by an Atlanta Braves pitcher.
Our very first Strike Out Hunger, on Friday, April 6th, was incredibly successful – we collected 230 lbs. of food and $820 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank in exchange for Tim Hudson’s autograph. The line started forming before the gates even opened for that evening’s matchup against the Chicago Cubs. Check out the video below to hear our Community Affairs Manager, Janet Sevilla, discuss this initiative.
Our next collection is coming up on Friday May 3rd prior to the Braves vs. Mets game. We will have bullpen stud Jonny Venters signing autographs in Monument Grove from 6:35 – 7:00 pm, so don’t forget your donations for the Atlanta Community Food Bank!
