CHICAGO, April 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stout is pleased to announce the Stout-Ryder Cup. Launched in March, this new charitable program benefits Food Rescue US and is associated with Stout's sponsorship of professional golfer and Stout brand ambassador Sam Ryder. Stout has made an initial donation from the program to the Food Rescue US COVID-19 Response Fund. The donation assists the organization amid the growing amount of food insecurity due to the dramatic increase of unemployed in our nation.
With the goal of raising money for charity, the Stout-Ryder Cup is a monthly fitness competition in which Stout employees go head-to-head with Ryder. Ultimately, competition efforts are converted to a charitable donation to Food Rescue US. As part of the program, Stout is teaming up with the following companies: Srixon, Garden of Life, Greyson Clothiers, Ralph Lauren, and Duvel USA.
"The support from Stout means the world to us, especially during this time of critical need due to COVID-19, and we're grateful for the partnership with Stout," said Food Rescue US CEO Carol Shattuck. "During these unprecedented times, Food Rescue US is stepping up and delivering as much food as possible in response to the increasing needs of the food insecure."
"I am proud to be associated with Stout and this program aimed at helping employees stay healthy. The best part is, we're also making a larger impact by supporting our local communities through this awesome charitable effort," added Sam Ryder.
