The Cleveland Indians announced a donation in partnership with Meijer and Dunkin’ of over 160,000 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to help support the Northeast Ohio community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Current Cleveland Indians players Jake Bauers, Shane Bieber, Brad Hand, and Nick Wittgren all contributed donations through the Home Plate Project – an initiative between Major League Baseball, country music artist Garth Brooks’ Teammates for Kids Foundation, and Big League Impact, which was founded by St. Louis Cardinals pitcherAdam Wainwright and led by Wainwright and Texas Rangers pitcher Kyle Gibson.

“During these unprecedented times, it’s great to know that we can continue to count on such great partners like the Cleveland Indians along with Meijer and Dunkin’,” said Kristin Warzocha, President and CEO, Greater Cleveland Food Bank. “We have seen a dramatic increase in the need over the last few weeks and this donation will help us keep up with the demand and continue to get food out to the thousands of people affected by this crisis. Thank you. We are beyond grateful.”

Tribe fans can get involved with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank during this crisis by donating money or non-perishable goods. More information can be found at www.GreaterClevelandFoodBank.org.
