The Ertz Family Foundation and The Athletes’ Corner launch ‘Meals n’ Medals’ for the Tokyo Olympics

PHILADELPHIAJuly 23, 2021 — This last week, the United States Women’s National Team began their quest to win the whole thing in Tokyo. As Julie Ertz and her teammates represent our country on the field, they will actively be changing lives off the field.

Through a new initiative called, ‘Meals n’ Medals’, Julie will be spearheading a charitable cause to fight hunger through the performance of the USWNT. For the entire duration of their time in Tokyo, The Ertz Family Foundation will team up with The Athletes’ Corner and Feeding America® to help provide 50,000 meals*  for every goal the USWNT scores, as well as 50,000 meals for every game they win!

Meals N’ Medals

These meals will be donated to various food banks across the United States, making it possible for our Nation’s team to feed our nation.

“Zach and Julie are amazing individuals who constantly seek to strengthen families and serve others as Christ would serve,” said Brennen Creer, Co-Founder of The Athletes’ Corner. “We could not be more proud to partner with The Ertz Family Foundation and Feeding America® to create an avenue in which the lives of so many families can be changed.”

“Food insecurity is such a huge problem, and Zach and Julie Ertz are passionate about helping and uplifting families in need,” said Kelenna Azubuike, Co-Founder of The Athletes’ Corner. “With Matthew 25 in mind, we’re super excited to partner with the Ertz Family Foundation and Feeding America to carry out this tremendous initiative!”
