Mosaic and the Tampa Bay Lightning Announce Donation for the Goals for Food Program
The Mosaic Company, along with the Tampa Bay Lightning, announced a donation of $200,000 through the Goals for Food partnership program. It’s the latest example on a growing list of ways the company continues to support local communities during these challenging times.
“Mosaic’s mission is to help the world grow the food it needs,” said President and CEO Joc O’Rourke. “At this time of critical need, we are pleased to support the many vital community food organizations associated with the Goals for Food program. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Lightning in the years ahead.”
Prior to the NHL pause on the regular season due to the coronavirus outbreak, Mosaic had anticipated making a total donation of $70,000. For every goal scored by a Lightning player at home, Mosaic pledged $500 and $5,000 for every Bolts hat trick on home ice.
But, unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures and the decision was made to more than double the donation amount to $200,000. The funds will be distributed among 14 food banks in six local counties.
Since launching in 2013, Goals for Food has had a profound impact on the lives of food insecure residents across Tampa Bay, providing 6 million meals to local families through our food partners.
The need will continue to grow, according to Mosaic food bank partner Feeding Tampa Bay. The organization is urging members of the community who are able to donate – regardless of the amount. For every dollar raised at www.feedingtampabay.org, 10 meals are provided to those who need it most.
