NFL, Professional Athlete
“Hunger doesn't take a vacation. It's never in season or out of season. My lifelong goal is to end hunger. Feeding America shares the vision and I am committed to helping this organization in their fight. No child, adult, or elderly person in the U.S. should have to question where their next meal is coming from. Access to healthy, nutritious food should always be an option. Together, we can bless this country by uniting to end hunger.”
