Packers and Sargento raise $45,000 to fight hunger

Posted Nov 15, 2012

Supports Wisconsin Hunger Task Force and Paul's Pantry

The Green Bay Packers and Sargento have raised $45,000 thus far in 2012 for the “Touchdowns for Charity” program to benefit the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee County and Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay. For each touchdown scored by the Packers during the 2012 regular season, Sargento donates $1,500 total (on 30 TDS thus far) to help fight hunger.

Since partnering 10 years ago, Sargento – the official cheese of the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field – has contributed more than $820,000 to the Hunger Task Force and Paul’s Pantry.

During Packers’ home games, announcements are made after every touchdown indicating the support for the program. Packers.com features a Sargento banner logo with the up-to-date donation total as well.

In December, Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will assist Sargento in presenting funds to both the Hunger Task Force and Paul’s Pantry.

Sargento, a family-owned, Wisconsin-based company, is supporting Packers sponsorship throughout Wisconsin grocery retailers during the season with in-store product promotions to generate excitement with Packers fans. Sargento is also present at Lambeau in concessions with cheeseburgers featuring Sargento Deli Style Mild Cheddar cheese and breaded cheese curds featuring natural Cheddar cheese.

Founded in 1953 in Plymouth, Sargento is a leading manufacturer, packager and marketer of natural shredded, sliced and snack cheeses, cheese appetizers, ingredients, sauces and other culinary solutions.

A United Way agency, the Hunger Task Force is the only major food bank in Milwaukee County that provides all of its food to area pantries free of charge. The agency believes that every person has the right to adequate food obtained with dignity, and works to prevent and alleviate hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve food security tomorrow.

About Paul’s Pantry

Its goal is to provide a family with enough food every week for as long as needed, so that they may use their food dollars to avoid homelessness.
