July 27, 2018 - South Atlantic League (SAL) - Lexington Legends News Release

LEXINGTON, KY and KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - July 26th, 2018 - The Lexington Legends and BUSH'S Beans are working with God's Pantry Food Bank to "Team Up Against Hunger." In its second year, this program encourages fans to bring non-perishable food donations to Whitaker Bank Ballpark and, in turn, fans will receive a $9 Box Seat for helping to feed the local community through the Food Bank. Ninety Minor League Baseball™(MiLB) clubs across the country will "Team Up Against Hunger" throughout the month of July. The month is significant as it marks the middle of summer break and a crucial time when millions of children are not receiving free or reduced-price meals at their schools as they do when school is in session.

"We are honored to partner with BUSH'S Beans and God's Pantry Food Bank to bring the issue of hunger to light using our MiLB platform," said Jesse Scaglion, Legends Director of Corporate Sales. "This is one great way to bring the community together to show that we are united in the fight against hunger in our hometown."

"As a family-owned food company, it is important to everyone at BUSH'S to help hungry families," said Mike Morris, consumer experience manager at Bush Brothers & Co. "Working with Minor League Baseball and communities nationwide helps bring attention and action to a very important topic - beating hunger."

"Fighting hunger in our community is a mission we work toward every day," Michael Halligan, CEO, God's Pantry Food Bank. "1 in 6 Kentuckians do not know where their next meal will come from. We are grateful to Minor League Baseball and BUSH'S Beans for joining us in a cause that is so near to our hearts and the hearts of this community."
