b'STRIKING OUT HUNGER ON DELMARVA For the eighth year in a row, Perdue Farms once again teamed up with the Delmarva Shorebirds - the Class A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles - and three Delmarva food banks for the annual Perdue Strike Out Hunger Challenge on Delmarva to deliver 133,000 meals across Delmarva communities in 2019. The 2019 Perdue Strike Out Hunger Challenge on Delmarva provided the forum to continue the awareness and community engagement that began with Perdues sponsorship of the 2011 South Atlantic League Perdue Strike Out Hunger All-Star Game promotions. Since then, the Shorebirds and food banks have embraced the Strike Out Hunger Challenge to generate more than 1.1 million meals for those in need on Delmarva. To drive the Perdue Strike Out Hunger Challenge on Delmarva, Perdue Farms issued a $15,000 challenge grant, which the Perdue Foundation funded. The grant benefited the Maryland Food BankEastern Shore Branch, the Food Bank of Delaware and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. Each of the food banks was required to engage the Delmarva community to raise the equivalent of 10,000 meals in order to claim its equal share of the $15,000 challenge grant. This included any combination of pounds of food collected, funds collected and donated or volunteer hours throughout the duration of the Shorebirds season. Additionally, Perdue donated $10 each time the Shorebirds pitchers struck out an opposingbatter, up to $5,000. PEOPLE AND PARTNERS: OUR COMMUNITIES 63'
