MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of the 2021 'Birdies for Meals' campaign, global consulting firm Protiviti is donating 151,500 meals to people in need. The donation is based on the success of professional golfers Matt Fitzpatrick and Jennifer Kupcho during golf's Major Championships in 2021. Protiviti pledged to donate 1,000 meals for each birdie made by Fitzpatrick and Kupcho as part of its global i on Hunger program.
Matt Fitzpatrick and Jennifer Kupcho, both rising stars in professional golf, have been brand ambassadors for Protiviti since February 2020. Together, they made 115 birdies and 2 eagles across the nine Major Championships in the 2021 season. Protiviti extended the 'Birdies for Meals' campaign through the Solheim and Ryder Cup tournaments, adding additional meals for their respective qualifications and 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.
"We are thrilled at the results of our Birdies for Meals campaign and owe a special thank you to Matt Fitzpatrick and Jennifer Kupcho for their magnificent achievements on the golf course," said Protiviti President and CEO Joseph Tarantino. "Protiviti continues to be deeply committed to our i on Hunger initiative, which aims to provide meals for the hungry and also improve food availability, quality and utilization, and to our nonprofit partners in their global efforts to attack the root causes of hunger."
"When Protiviti came to us earlier this year with the 'Birdies for Meals' campaign, we were moved by their generosity. 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. We're proud to partner alongside Protiviti in the fight against hunger!"
The i on Hunger initiative has provided over 11,500,000 meals in more than 20 participating countries since it began in 2014. For details about Protiviti's program, please visit: https://www.ionhunger.com/
