As a result of the 2021 Birdies for Meals campaign, we’re donating 151,500 meals to people in need through Protiviti’s i on Hunger program. The donation is based on the success of our pro golfers and brand ambassadors Matt Fitzpatrick and Jennifer Kupcho during golf’s Major Championships in 2021. Thanks to their great efforts on the course, we’re able to honor – and exceed – our pledge to donate 1,000 meals for each birdie made by Fitzpatrick and Kupcho.
How They Did It
If you’ve been following them this year, you know that Matt and Jennifer are rising stars in professional golf. Together, they made 115 birdies and 2 eagles across the nine Major Championships in the 2021 season. Extending our Birdies for Meals campaign through the Solheim and Ryder Cup tournaments resulting in additional meals for their respective qualifications and any points earned by the players, bringing the final tally of contributed meals to 151,500. The meals will be donated via the nonprofit organization, U.S. Hunger.

After a challenging year for families in need across the globe, their donation was a beacon of hope,” said Rick Whitted, CEO, U.S. Hunger. “We’re at the end of the campaign and are about to distribute 151,500 meals…way above their initial pledge.
