Double Dollars for Brewers Doubles

Sargento Foods Inc., and the Milwaukee Brewers have announced an expansion of the annual Double Helping for Hunger program.
New this season, Sargento will now contribute $200 to Hunger Task Force for every double the Brewers hit at home or away. Previously, donations only took place for doubles that were hit during home games. Brewers outfielder and 2018 National League Most Valuable Player Christian Yelich was on hand to kick off the promotion as he led the team in doubles during the 2018 season.
"It's an honor to partner with Sargento," Yelich said. "It was brought to my attention how big the hunger problem is here in Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin and how many people really need help. For (Sargento) to step up and do this and include me as a partner is an honor. Hopefully we can do our part on the field, hit a bunch of doubles and raise as much money as we can." 
As the Official Cheese of the Milwauke Brewers, Sargento donated $24,000 to Hunger Task Force for doubles the Brewers hit during home games in 2018 regular season. Sargento launched Double Helping for Hunger in 2018.
