Brewers' double hits raise $60K for Hunger Task Force on behalf of Sargento

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Sargento Foods Inc. donated $60,000 to Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee as part of the annual Double Helping for Hunger campaign. 

For every double hit by the Brewers at home or away games, Sargento donates $200 to the HTF. With 258 doubles hit this season by the NL Central Division Champs, the total was $51,600. 

According to a news release, to further amplify these efforts, Sargento donated $1 for every like, retweet and comment on Twitter by Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, discussing hunger in our community and the need for support.

The efforts gifted a total of $60,000 to HTF. 

“We believe that real food builds stronger communities. We partner with the Hunger Task Force because of our shared belief that families should have access to nutritious food no matter who they are or where they are from,” says Louie Gentine, third-generation CEO of Sargento Foods. “We understand the importance of the Hunger Task Force’s unique free-and-local model of service and the impact it has in Southeast Wisconsin.”

“We’re honored Sargento and the Milwaukee Brewers have chosen Hunger Task Force for this continued partnership. This generous donation will go directly toward feeding hungry families and children in our community,” says Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force.
