Thank you for joining the Kansas City Royals Grounds Crew & Royals Charities for the 2nd Annual Home Runs for Hunger event at Kauffman Stadium. Fans donated canned food items or made a cash donation to Harvesters - The Community Food Network, for the unique opportunity to take batting practice on the field and shag fly balls in the outfield.

As the area's only food bank, Harvesters has been helping people in need since 1979. The Harvesters network includes more than 620 nonprofit agencies throughout a 26-county service area, including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children's homes, homes for the mentally disabled and shelters for battered persons. Harvesters can feed five people for just $1 and provides food assistance to as many as 66,000 different people each week.

Fans who were unable to attend but still wish to make a monetary donation may donate online, or send checks to Royals Charities at One Royal Way, Kansas City, MO 64129. Please note in the memo of the check that it is for Home Runs for Hunger.
