THE BREWSPAPER / BALLAST POINT AND PADRES TEAM TO SUPPORT COVID-19 RESPONSE
From West Coaster Beverage News website: WWW.Westcoastersd.com
Point Brewing Company and The Padres Foundation are teaming together to benefit Feeding San Diego’s COVID-19 relief efforts through sales of the official craft beer of the San Diego Padres, Ballast Point’s Swingin’ Friar Ale. For each case sold from March (when California’s mandatory quarantine began) through June 30th, Ballast Point and The Padres Foundation will donate $1 each toward Feeding San Diego, one of the city’s top hunger relief organizations.
“No one should go hungry and Feeding San Diego continues to do a tremendous job making food accessible to those in need, now more than ever,” says Ballast Point CEO, Brendan Watters. “We want to do our part to help and along with The Padres Foundation, we hope to bring those numbers down and continue to raise awareness around the issue.”
“The Padres are proud to partner with Ballast Point on this initiative to help combat food insecurity in our San Diego region,” says Padres President of Business Operations Erik Greupner. “Feeding San Diego needs our support during these challenging times to provide meals for individuals and families in need.”
In response to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Feeding San Diego has increased emergency food distributions to help meet the surge in demand throughout San Diego County, maintaining its operations and striving to minimize disruption to hunger-relief services while implementing new methods of food assistance.
