Cousins Subs donates $16,300 to Block out Hunger campaign with the Hunger Task Force and the Bucks
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Forty students who are participating in a nutrition program in Milwaukee Public Schools took a field trip to Fiserv Forum on Thursday, May 12. They were able to hang out on the court, take home some Bucks swag and they stayed to eat Cousins Subs for lunch.
“It’s pretty exciting to be here with my friends and stuff, and we get to see the mascot over there,” said Jordan Rollins. It was Jordan's first time meeting Bango and his first time on the court.
It was a celebration to honor the donation Cousins Subs made to the Hunger Task Force as part of the Block Out Hunger Campaign.
Throughout the regular season the Bucks made 326 blocks.
"We donated $50 in honor of our 50th anniversary, to the Hunger Task Force," said Justin McCoy, the vice president of marketing for Cousins Subs.
Bango presented the Hunger Task Force with a check for $50 per block, a total of $16,300.
"I want to give a special shout out to all our Bucks players who’ve had so many blocks over the course of the season," said Jonathan Jansen, the director of development for the Hunger Task Force.
The Hunger Task Force says the money will go to help assure families have nutritious food on the table.
Some students say they left a little good luck on the court for Giannis in Game 6.
