Former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow announced this week that he launching the "Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund," which supports the Athens County Food Pantry.

Per Facebook:


"I’m up here for all those kids in Athens and Athens County that go home to not a lot of food on the table, hungry after school." Thanks to Joe Burrow's Heisman speech, there will be more food on the table for kids in our region.

Joe's Heisman speech triggered a fundraiser that raised $650,000 for the Athens County Food Pantry. Knowing the depth of food insecurity in Athens County and throughout Southeast Ohio, ACFP chose to invest $350,000 to address hunger long-term. They created the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio. The Foundation matched this investment to create a $700,000 endowment, which will generate tens of thousands of dollars each year to serve those in need throughout the region.

Joe, and a number of local and national companies, have already committed to support the Fund. By donating today, you can join them.
Let's do it again, #BulldogNation, #TigerNation, #BengalNation, and everyone looking for a great cause to support!
