Fighting hunger never takes an off-season. It’s a year round effort and that’s why we sent a group of volunteers to a vacant Kauffman Stadium in mid-November last weekend.

Teaming up with Harvesters and the Kansas City Royals, our volunteers helped host the 2013 Home Runs for Hunger event on Nov. 8-9. The effort, which allowed participants to donate food or money in return for the chance to hit a home run and shag fly balls inside the Major League stadium, raised over $8,000 and 2,000 pounds of food.

In total, the combined donations will equal 41,718 meals for the hungry in our community.
