Last week, the Tampa Bay Lightning, The Mosaic Company, Feeding Tampa Bay and other hunger-relief organizations celebrated their collaboration on the Goals for Food initiative during an intense game against the Detroit Red Wings. The Goals for Food program helps to feed the hungry in the Tampa Bay region, with Mosaic donating $500 per goal scored by the Lightning during each home game and $5,000 for every hat trick.
Before the game, Mosaic and Feeding Tampa Bay held a canned food drive outside of the arena. The atmosphere was full of excitement as energetic fans made their way inside. During the game, Mosaic presented a check in conjunction with the program for $70,000. These funds will help to benefit Feeding Tampa Bay and multiple other local food bank partners. Between this generous contribution and the Lightning’s stellar performance, the evening was definitely a win.
These groups are extremely passionate about the fight to help end hunger and food insecurity. The Goals for Food program brings such awareness to a widespread issue. It is also exciting to tie the Lightning’s successes to helping those in need in our local communities. With $1 providing 10 meals to those in need, this contribution will help to keep hunger in the Bay Area in “check”.
