Capitol All-Stars Softball Game
On September 30th we partnered with PLS for a very special event. Legislators from both sides of the aisle came together as teams to benefit Feeding Pennsylvania and Hunger-Free Pennsylvania — organizations dedicated to serving more than two million needy Pennsylvanians in all 67 counties through their statewide network of affiliated food banks.
If you missed the game, you can catch the re-air on Saturday, October 5th at 2 p.m.
According to Feeding America’s 2012 Map the Meal Gap study, 1,850,140 people across the Commonwealth (that’s 14.6% of Pennsylvania’s population) don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Of those, 555,110 are children.
All proceeds will be equally divided between Feeding Pennsylvania and Hunger-Free Pennsylvania.
