Mosaic Partners with Home Hockey Teams to End Hunger

 
April 12, 2016   |   ShareThis

At Mosaic, sometimes supporting our communities means rooting for the home hockey team—especially when that team helps fight hunger for our neighbors in need.

This season, Mosaic partnered with the Tampa Bay Lightning in Florida and the Moose Jaw Warriors in Saskatchewan. In all, Mosaic contributed $92,000 for local food banks, providing more than 722,000 meals.

Congratulations to the Warriors and the Bolts on a great season—and thanks for teaming up with Mosaic to bring food to the tables of those who need it most.

Working to Help “Check” Hunger in Central Florida

Mosaic presented a $70,000 check to Feeding Tampa Bay and 13 other local food bank partners as part of our Goals for Food partnership with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season. Mosaic also worked with Feeding Tampa Bay to organize a food drive before a recent game that collected enough food and donations to provide 12,618 meals for neighbors in need.

Since the program began in 2013, Mosaic has donated nearly $280,000 to support local hunger relief efforts – and that amount will continue to grow. The program, which will continue during the 2016-17 season, links the success of the Lightning to helping families in need across the Tampa Bay region.

“We are extremely proud to partner with the Lightning, Feeding Tampa Bay, and other local food banks throughout our operating area to make a difference in our local communities,” said Bo Davis, Mosaic senior vice president of phosphate operations.

Food bank partners include Feeding Tampa Bay, Meals on Wheels of Tampa, the Florida Association of Food Banks and the Harry Chapin Food Bank in Fort Myers, the Hardee Help Center in Wauchula, All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota, Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, Our Daily Bread in Bradenton, VISTE in Lakeland, the Mulberry Community Center in Mulberry, Thomas Promise Foundation in Zephyrhills, United Food Bank & Services in Plant City, Help of Fort Meade, and Cutting Edge Ministries in Zolfo Springs.

‘Points for Hunger’ Campaign Helps Hunger in Moose Jaw

This hockey season, Mosaic partnered with the Moose Jaw Warriors for the ‘Points for Hunger’ campaign to support Hunger in Moose Jaw, a local hunger relief agency.

Throughout the regular season, for every point Warriors captain Brayden Point scored, Mosaic donated $250 to Hunger in Moose Jaw, for a grand total of $22,000.

“At Mosaic, food security is what drives our business,” said Sarah Fedorchuk, Senior Director of Public Affairs. “We are excited about this new partnership and how successful not only the Warriors have been this season, but also Brayden Point. We know Hunger in Moose Jaw will benefit greatly.”

Through this campaign, Hunger in Moose Jaw will be able to continue to provide more nutritious lunches for hungry children in Moose Jaw.

Since 2009, Mosaic has provided over $180,000 or about 180,000 nutritious lunches to children in need through the ‘Growing Tomorrow’s Minds’ child nutrition program. The program provides children with healthy and wholesome lunches every school day, helping them perform well in the classroom.
