Raising Food For the Hungry & Building Grass Roots Tennis
1.5lbs of food equals one meal.
Networking with the tennis community to help alleviate hunger in underserved communities through strategic partnerships with regional food banks.
During covid the need for food aid was so strong we decided to become a formal 501 c3 non profit to help raise food at the national level. While our events are held across the country all food raised is donated to the food bank closest to the location of the event so all food stays local.
Our second focus is to create tennis event opportunities for children of all income levels. We volunteer to teach tennis in PE classes to help promote grass roots tennis. Our school volunteering is paired with a school wide food drive and all food is donated to the food bank closest to the school.
