GREEN BAY — Thanks to the Packers high scoring offense, the team and Sargento Foods Inc have surpassed $100,000 in donations for hunger relief during the 2020 season.

The Packers teamed up with Sargento for a program called Touchdowns for Hunger. For every touchdown, Sargento donates $2,000 toward hunger relief in Wisconsin. The Pack have scored 52 touchdowns this season, so that's $104,000. Paul's Pantry in Green Bay and Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee will be the recipients of the donations.
The donations aren't over yet. There are still three more regular season games and Sargento will continue donating $2,000 for every touchdown. Hopefully this means Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams keep connecting in the endzone!

The partnership between the Packers and Sargento began in 2002. So far, $1.4 million has been raised to fight hunger in Wisconsin.
