BASF's Sack Hunger Challenge back for 2022 Kansas State SeasonFri, 23 Sep 2022 13:17:53 CDT
September is national Hunger Action Month and BASF is once again donating to the Kansas Food Bank through its Sack Hunger initiative. Since 2016, whenever the Kansas State defensive sacks an opposing quarterback, BASF donates $100 to the Kansas Food Bank as part of the initiative.
Annually, the Food Bank served over 945,000 people through their food pantries and meal service programs feeding area families, an increase of about 30 percent pre-pandemic.
“BASF is dedicated to support initiatives like this one because of the direct positive impact to where we live and work,” said Mike Hofer, BASF Director - U.S. Crop West Region, BASF Corporation. “Over the last seven years, I am proud to say our campaign has raised $21,000 to support the local community.”
“With so many of our neighbors struggling with higher food prices, utilities and most other daily necessities, the BASF Sack Hunger Program will truly help put much needed nutritious food on the table for so many,” said Brian Walker, President & CEO of the Kansas Food Bank.
Kansas Food Bank and its network of nonprofit pantry partner agencies provide food assistance to someone in need more than 945,000 times each year. Forty-seven percent of food-insecure neighbors served by Kansas Food Bank’s network in 85 counties get more than half of their monthly food from a food pantry.
“The Kansas Food Bank is appreciative of BASF and their support over the years. Together we can Sack Hunger,” concluded Brian Walker, President & CEO of the Kansas Food Bank.
