Those Extra Hot Dogs will Feed Others…

As one of several “green” changes at Kauffman Stadium this season, we just announced a new partnership with Rock and Wrap it Up! – a nationally known program that works with sports teams to help fight hunger in the community. The Royals, with help from the club’s food service providers Aramark and Centerplate, will distribute all the extra food items from the concession stands and clubhouses to Harvesters – the Community Food Network.

The Rock and Wrap it Up! program was launched in 2003 with help from Mike Maroth, who is currently pitching for the Omaha Royals, and his wife, Brooke. Now, just five years later, several MLB teams – including Detroit (Maroth’s former team), Atlanta, Boston, St. Louis and both New York teams – have launched the program at their stadiums.

This is a great idea. There’s so many venues like amusement parks, fast food chains, etc. that just throw out the extra food at the end of the night, not even giving away to customers leaving or employees. At least it won’t be happening at Kauffman anymore.
