TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning and The Mosaic Company announced today that in conjunction with their Goals for Food program, the partnership will be teaming up with Feeding Tampa Bay for a virtual food drive through May 10.
In years past the Lightning and Mosaic have partnered to host food drives at select Lightning home games but because of the global pandemic this year will be a virtual food drive. We are encouraging fans to help those battling food insecurity by donating even the smallest amount. For every dollar raised by Feeding Tampa Bay at donate.feedingtampabay.org/mosaic 10 meals are provided to those who are in need.
"Mosaic's mission is to help the world grow the food it needs," said Mosaic senior vice president, North America Bruce Bodine. "At this time of critical need, we are pleased to support the many vital community food organizations associated with the Goals for Food program. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Lightning in the many years ahead."
So far this season, the Lightning has helped Mosaic raise more than $40,000 through the Goals for Food program. Mosaic donates $500 for every home Lightning goal and $5,000 for every hat trick scored with the proceeds benefitting Feeding Tampa Bay and 13 additional local food banks.
