The program connects wins on the field, with wins in the community. The Athlete's Corner and Zach and Julie's, Ertz Family Foundation will partner to deliver 2,500 meals to Philadelphia families in need for each touchdown the Eagles score during home games in Nov. and Dec.
5,000 meals will be donated for each TD that Ertz scores.
"This holiday season we are joining forces with The Athletes' Corner with one goal in mind, to help feed our city. It has always been an amazing feeling to help our city and to be able to provide thousands of meals to our community takes it to another level. With this holiday program, we look forward to celebrating touchdowns together with Philadelphia." -- Zach and Julie Ertz
"We're an organization that aims to support families through sports and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with Zach and Julie and the Ertz Family Foundation. They are just as much champions on the field, as they are off of it, and this program gives everyone a reason to root for Eagles TDs." -- Brennen Creer, Co-Founder & CEO of the Athletes' Corner.
'Holiday Touchdowns for Meals' begins this Sunday, as the Eagles host the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football on NBC at 8:20 p.m. ET.
