Striking Out Poverty

Players & Partners

Striking Out Poverty is an initiative of Food for the Hungry that invites professional baseball players and fans to help end extreme poverty in the Dominican Republic.

We are thrilled to work with athletes and influencers to connect their success on the baseball diamond with helping people who live in hard places. We believe that all communities should flourish! With their help, we’ve already seen children and families in the Dominican Republic begin to experience change! When you join Striking Out Poverty, you add to the impact!
