NASHVILLE, Tenn. - NewsChannel 5 has teamed up with Second Harvest food back to help feed the one in five Tennesseans who go hungry every day.
On Tuesday, fans arrived at Greer Stadium to see the Sounds play and to meet the CBS Buzz Bus, but also to donate some 300 pounds of food.
"I didn't realize that one in six people had hunger. I knew in foreign countries it was bad, but I didn't know it was quite that bad in the U.S. that people struggled with hunger like that," said Deborah Bowie, a Sounds Fan.
After the ceremonial first pitch and a photo op with some of reality TV's biggest stars, fans were able to give back to those in need in Middle Tennessee.
"A dollar to us equals four meals that we can provide. So any dollar donation that we get, we can provide four meals to those who need it most," said Chris Wraley with the Second Harvest.
It's a different kind of statistic than fans are used to hearing about at Greer Stadium, but one they'll remember long after the last play is made.
