The Crosstown Classic, the Windy City Showdown, or the Red Line Series. No matter what you call it, after 117 years of rivalry the Chicago White Sox are making moves even their North Side contenders can appreciate.

To confront the food security dilemma in the Chicago area, the White Sox are teaming up with Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) at Guaranteed Rate Field to host a Hunger Project, packaging 100,000 meals for hungry children and families in the Cook County community.

In the city of Chicago, 1 in 6 people — more than 807,000 men, women and children — are food insecure. This means they are unsure of when they will eat next or where that meal will come from.

Feeding Children Everywhere’s vice president of Strategic Partnerships, former Colorado Rockies outfielder, Kent Zweifel says: “I hope other professional teams take notice of what the Sox are doing in the fight against hunger.”

No matter which team you cheer for, all of us can help create a hunger-free world.
