Milwaukee Bucks and Cousins Subs team up to Block Out Hunger for 2018-19 season
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- For the fourth consecutive season, the Bucks and Cousins Subs are continuing their Block Out Hunger campaign.
For this season’s Block Out Hunger campaign, Cousins’ Make It Better Foundation will donate $50 for every blocked shot the Bucks tally in 2018-19 to Hunger Task Force in support of emergency food supplies at pantries across the state. The campaign will also include surprise sub deliveries and appearances from the Bucks and Cousins at three community centers across the state. The visits will happen in the Fox Valley, Madison and Milwaukee during the holiday season and will include Bango, the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers and Bucks Hoop Troop, with Cousins providing food for those in need at each visit.
Additionally, as part of Fiserv Forum’s locally-based food and beverage program, MKEat, Cousins will operate a portable concession stand on the upper concourse of the venue that will sell select subs along with assorted Cousins’ chips during all Bucks games and events.
Last season’s Block Out Hunger campaign raised $22,150 in donations for Hunger Task Force after the Bucks ranked second in the Eastern Conference, and fifth overall in the NBA, by blocking 443 shots during the regular season. Since the 2015-16 season, the Block Out Hunger initiative has raised a total of $51,815 and 14,441 pounds of food to support Hunger Task Force and pantries statewide.
