Kelvin Beachum Match Challenge
WORLD FOOD DAY
World Food Day is celebrated internationally on October 16th every year to honor the founding date of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945.
This World Food Day, Kelvin Beachum is excited to initiate a match challenge for five food banks across the US that honor his hometown, his home state of Texas, and the cities he has played for during his NFL career. Kelvin will donate $5K to each of the five food banks, pledging to double that donation if matched by community members for a potential, personal gift of $50K.

Since joining the NFL in 2012, Kelvin has been an advocate in the fight against hunger. He became an official spokesman for Bread for the World in May of 2015 and has partnered with them to help pass legislation that would improve school lunch and breakfast programs and has helped educate policymakers on the effects of malnutrition. He is also a member of the Feeding America Entertainment Council and a support agent for their network of over 200 domestic food banks. He has a strategic partnership with World Vision for global, humanitarian efforts focusing on combatting hunger, providing access to clean water, education, and disaster relief.
