CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians are giving back to the community through a partnership with Meijer and Dunkin’ Donuts to donate over 160,000 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

Current Indians players Jake Bauers, Shane Bieber, Brad Hand and Bick Wittgren all donated through the Home Plate Project, an initiative between Major League Baseball, country music artist Garth Brooks’ foundation and nonprofit Big League Impact.

“During these unprecedented times, it’s great to know that we can continue to count on such great partners like the Cleveland Indians along with Meijer and Dunkin’,” said Kristin Warzocha, president and CEO, Greater Cleveland Food Bank, in a news release. “We have seen a dramatic increase in the need over the last few weeks and this donation will help us keep up with the demand and continue to get food out to the thousands of people affected by this crisis. Thank you. We are beyond grateful.”
