Topgolf Donates $75,000 to North Texas Food Bank - Hunger Action Month

As the presenting sponsor of Hunger Action Month, global sports entertainment leader Topgolf® donated $75,000 to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB), providing 225,000 nutritious meals to Texans in need. The NTFB is helping feed thousands of Houston residents displaced by Hurricane Harvey. In addition to its donation, Topgolf has been fundraising for the Houston Food Bank and Feeding America, the national network of food banks that comprises both the NTFB and the Houston Food Bank.

"We are grateful to Topgolf for their support of the Feeding America network in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma," said Feeding America Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Operations Nancy Curby. "There are people struggling with hunger in every single county in the United States. However, when a disaster strikes, this need is compounded. We appreciate Topgolf for helping raise awareness of this great need."

The NTFB is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, providing access to more than 190,000 meals each day for hungry children, seniors and families through a network of more than 1,000 programs and 200 Partner Agencies in a 13-county service area.

To combat increasing food insecurity in North Texas, the NTFB recently launched a 10-year plan to provide access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025.

"After a devastating hurricane, a box of food or a case of water can make a person's day," said Topgolf Entertainment Group Co-Chairman and CEO Erik Anderson. "We are proud to work with Feeding America and its affiliates the North Texas Food Bank and Houston Food Bank to provide nutritious meals for communities in need."

Topgolf and Feeding America collaborated on a mini documentary about the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. To support Feeding America's fight against hunger, please visit www.feedingamerica.org/topgolf.
