In recognition of Thanksgiving 2009, Major League Eating has made a donation to the Food Bank for New York City, a member of Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest.)

MLE is happy to make this donation, and proud of the fact that, through the year, its sponsors and individual eaters donate food, money and time to support food banks and other charities.

The troubled economy and high unemployment has resulted in more and more people turning to already-taxed food pantries for nourishment. If you’d like to learn how you can help fight hunger in your area, visit Feeding America
