Funds will be distributed to 12 food banks in six local counties
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Goals for Food partnership between The Mosaic Company and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Since launching in 2013, Mosaic has donated over 9.8 million meals to local communities, providing hunger relief to those most vulnerable in Tampa Bay and surrounding communities.
During each regular season, Mosaic donates $1,000 for every goal and $1,500 for every hat trick scored by a Lightning player on home ice. At the end of the season, the total donation is distributed among 12 regional partner organizations dedicated to ending food insecurity throughout West Central Florida.
“Mosaic is committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work, and our partnership with the Tampa Bay Lightning through the Goals for Food program is one way we can make a difference,” said Bruce Bodine, Mosaic’s Senior VP-North America. “We are proud to celebrate 10 years of this important program and remain dedicated to ending food insecurity in our region.”
On February 23, 2023 when the Lightning take on the Buffalo Sabres, Mosaic employees, community partners, and Lightning fans will come together to celebrate this milestone and continue to raise awareness about the need to support food insecure families in West Central Florida.
“We are incredibly proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Goals for Food program in partnership with Mosaic,” said Mark Pitts, Chief Operating Officer of Vinik Sports Group. “This program has been instrumental in supporting food insecure families in our community, and we look forward to continuing this important work with Mosaic to support hunger relief efforts.”
