Packers and Sargento raise $62,000 thus far to fight hunger

Posted Nov 22, 2011

Effort to support Wisconsin Hunger Task Force and Paul's Pantry in ninth season

The Green Bay Packers and Sargento thus far in 2011 have raised $62,000 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 2011 regular season, Sargento is donating $1,000 to the Hunger Task Force ($44,000 on 44 TDs thus far). Additionally, Sargento is donating $500 to Paul’s Pantry for every touchdown scored by the team’s wide receivers, full backs and tight ends ($18,000 on 36 TDs thus far).
 
Since partnering nine years ago, Sargento – the official cheese of the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field – has contributed more than $675,000 to Wisconsin food charities such as the Hunger Task Force and Paul’s Pantry.
 
During Packers home games, announcements will be made after every touchdown indicating the support for the program. Packers.com will feature a Sargento banner logo with the up-to-date total as well.
 
In December, Packers full back John Kuhn 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’ licensing throughout Wisconsin grocery retailers during the season with in-store displays and special product promotions to generate excitement with Packers fans. Sargento is also present at Lambeau in concessions with cheeseburgers featuring Sargento Deli Style Cheddar cheese. To learn more about Sargento visit www.sargento.com.
