Strikeouts add up to lean beef meals
For every strikeout recorded by the Columbus Clippers pitching staff this past season, a donation of two pounds of lean ground beef from Ohio’s beef farmers was made to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
During the 2013 season the Clippers pitching staff recorded 1,239 strikeouts, resulting in a donation of 2,478 pounds of lean ground beef.
Since the Striking Out Hunger with Lean Beef program was started in 2012, Ohio beef farmers have donated over 4,500 pounds of lean beef.
Partners in the Strike Out Hunger with Lean Beef program include; Ohio beef farmers, Columbus Clippers, Kroger, the Ohio Soybean Council, Ohio Corn Marketing Program and Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
