Mosaic Donates $12,000 To Harry Chapin Food Bank From Home Runs For Food For 2014 Rays Spring Training Season

Stocks in this article: MOS

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mosaic Company, through its Home Runs for Food program with the Tampa Bay Rays, on Saturday, March 22 donated $12,000 to the Harry Chapin Food Bank to help feed hungry families in Charlotte County. Sean Butler, Vice President, Human Resources for Mosaic and Kaley Miller, Manager of Communications, joined by Charlotte County Commissioner Christopher Constance, presented a check to Al Brislain, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank, prior to the start of the Rays' spring training game at Charlotte Sports Park.

Under the Home Runs for Food Program, Mosaic pledges $500 to the organization for every home run hit by the Rays. This year's contribution brings the total contributed to Harry Chapin over the past four years to $53,000.

"Together with the Rays and Harry Chapin Food Bank, we're pleased to be making a difference to Charlotte County residents who face a daily struggle to feed their families," said Butler. "The Home Runs for Food partnership also underscores Mosaic's global mission of helping the world grow the food it needs."

While the Harry Chapin Food Bank serves Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties, Mosaic's donation is earmarked to help overcome hunger specifically in Charlotte County. Hunger in Charlotte County has increased dramatically over the past four years. Harry Chapin distributed more than 2 million pounds of food last year to 25 Charlotte County partner agencies, including the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Cooper Street Recreation Center, First Church of the Nazarene, and St. Vincent De Paul.

"Mosaic and its employees have been steadfast supporters in the fight against hunger," said Al Brislain, Harry Chapin president and chief executive officer. "We are so grateful for their support, and for the substantial difference Mosaic has made in our ability to serve our neighbors in need in Charlotte County."

In honor of the Home Runs for Food partnership, Brislain threw out the first pitch of the March 22 Rays game.

The Home Runs for Food program began during the Rays' 2010 regular season to benefit Feeding America Tampa Bay, and will ramp up during regular season again on March 31 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
