‘Coach Bud’s Assists for Hunger’ Program Returns for Second Season
Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer and Feeding Wisconsin partner to curb hunger across the state
MILWAUKEE (Oct. 25, 2019) – Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer and Feeding Wisconsin have teamed up for another season to raise awareness and tackle hunger across the state with the return of Coach Bud’s Assists for Hunger program. During the 2019-20 Bucks season, Budenholzer will once again donate $15 to Feeding Wisconsin for every assist the Bucks tally, with a minimum commitment of $25,000.
“It was a great first season of teaming up with Feeding Wisconsin to help raise awareness and eradicate hunger in our community,” said Budenholzer. “Playing unselfish basketball was a core component of our success last season. With the Assists for Hunger program, we were thrilled that our high assist total was able to have a significant meaning off the court. We look forward to raising even more money for such an important cause this season.”
Feeding Wisconsin food banks are able to provide food for nearly three meals for every dollar donated, meaning one assist by the Bucks will equal approximately 45 meals. With a minimum contribution of $25,000, Feeding Wisconsin will be able to provide food for at least 75,000 meals through this program.
“We are excited to team once again with Coach Bud and the Bucks to defend against hunger,” said Stephanie Jung Dorfman, Executive Director of Feeding Wisconsin. “The meals raised through this partnership will help our food banks to increase access to the food and benefits Wisconsinites need to work, learn, play and live healthy lives.”
Fans are encouraged to join Budenholzer in his effort to tackle hunger statewide by donating to their local food bank. To find a local food bank, or to learn more about Feeding Wisconsin, visit www.FeedingWisconsin.org.
