November 5, 2022 – Los Angeles, CA –  Last year, NFL superstars Jalen Ramsey and Derwin James started a new foundation called The Safety Corner. This year, they are teaming up with Raising Cane’s and The Athletes’ Corner to fight hunger through the on-field performances of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers defenses.

The organizations will launch ‘Shut Down Hunger’ this Sunday – where they will help provide 2,500 meals in the greater Los Angeles community for every interception, fumble recovery, and sack that both the Rams and Chargers defenses record for the remainder of the 2022-23 NFL Season. For Jalen and Derwin’s stats, the organizations will double it up and help provide 5,000 meals.

Last year, The Safety Corner Foundation teamed up with The Athletes’ Corner to launch Feeding Families with Jalen Ramsey – which helped provide a total of 345,000 meals to food banks in Los Angeles, with the help of Feeding America.

This year, the organizations are expanding their impact with the help of Raising Cane’s by including the Los Angeles Chargers defense – as Derwin James, the standout Chargers Safety, is also the co-founder of The Safety Corner. 

“The Safety Corner Foundation’s ultimate goal is to make an impact in the lives of our youth and their families. Our reach is greater together therefore, the partnership with The Athletes’ Corner is something that we are extremely excited about. There are many great initiatives within the LA community and surrounding areas, but being able to join together to fight hunger and feed families in need truly resonates with the Safety Corner Foundation. Giving back is at the heart of what we do. It is exactly what our founders Jalen Ramsey and Derwin James believe in. We are excited about this initiative and truly believe it is going to be extremely impactful in changing many lives for the rest of this season. Thank you to Cane’s for helping sponsor this initiative as well.  – Christina Murray, Director of The Safety Corner Foundation

“I’m glad to partner with my friends Jalen and Derwin in this important fight to end hunger in the Los Angeles community. With nearly 20 Raising Cane’s locations around LA, and over 2,000 Crewmembers in the area, Los Angeles is a very important community to us at Cane’s. I can’t wait to see how Jalen and Derwin finish out this season, and how many lives around LA are impacted because of it!” – Todd Graves, Founder, and Co-CEO of Raising Cane’s

“Jalen Ramsey and Derwin James are doing something incredible with their platforms. They realize that they have the ability to bless the lives of others, and they are doing just that. We are proud to work alongside them, and Raising Cane’s, as we strive to help those who need it most.” – Brennen Creer, Co-Founder, and CEO of The Athletes’ Corner

It is estimated that over 2 million people are facing hunger in Los Angeles County alone – and according to Feeding America – 1 in 5 children is facing food insecurity. So, one of the biggest motives for this year’s Shut Down Hunger campaign is to help feed as many of these struggling children as possible. Matthew 25:40.
