Continues movement to end hunger through a goal of donating more than two million meals this NFL season
CAMDEN, N.J., (August 29, 2023) — Building on the success of the Chunky Sacks Hunger™ community program, Campbell’s® Chunky® is teaming up with NFL defensive stars to encourage fans to help sack food insecurity this upcoming season and donate more than two million meals. For every Chunky Bowl1 sold during the regular NFL season, Chunky Sacks Hunger will donate one meal2 to Feeding America®.
To drive participation in the program, Chunky is partnering with Camden native and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Haason Reddick to serve as the national spokesperson of Chunky Sacks Hunger. In addition, the brand will tap other NFL star defensive players, called the Soup Squad, to serve as representatives in their local communities. The Soup Squad roster includes:
“Teaming up with Chunky is a full-circle moment, as I grew up right down the street from Campbell’s Camden headquarters,” said Haason Reddick. “I’m honored to work with Chunky Sacks Hunger and inspire fans to join the fight against food insecurity.”
In 2022, approximately 49 million Americans—1 in 6—turned to food banks, food pantries and meal programs for help3. In its first year, Chunky Sacks Hunger donated more than one million meals to Feeding America and local partners.
“Helping communities is part of Chunky’s DNA, and we’re excited to continue that legacy in our second year of Chunky Sacks Hunger,” said Corey Provine, Director of Marketing, Campbell’s Soup. “We hope fans will rally behind our mission of sacking food insecurity and help us reach our goal of donating more than two million meals.”
