Kelvin Beachum pushes farm bill to help end hunger

Opinion: Professional athletes tell Congress: Pass a farm bill that helps end hunger in America
By Kelvin Beachum Curtis Granderson

Every time a player on the New York Mets hits a home run at their home ballpark, Citi donates $2,000 to No Kid Hungry. In 2023, the Mets’ 116 home runs at Citi Field raised $232,000, enough for 2.32 million meals for kids in need.

Over the past two years, the Arizona Cardinals have donated $65,000 and 325,000 meals to United Food Bank in Mesa, which each year distributes the equivalent of 50,000 meals per day to families in Arizona.

As a former Met (Curtis Granderson) and a current Arizona Cardinal (Kelvin Beachum), we are each proud of our respective team’s efforts to reduce the scourge of hunger in the United States — and to do our own parts as well.

Since 2007, the Curtis Granderson Foundation has provided millions of children and families access to nutritious food, pantry staples, and educational resources; its partnership with Chicagoland Mariano's grocery store chain since 2013 has resulted in more than 40 million meals donated through the annual Grand Giving campaign.

The Beachum Charitable Fund, founded in 2015, works to end hunger, provide clean water access, and provide access and opportunity within STEAM principles for minority students.
