Sports Initiatives


We want to see baseball end poverty.

Striking Out Poverty connects Major League Baseball players and fans to help end poverty around the world. An initiative of Food for the Hungry and Big League Impact, Striking Out Poverty is focused on meeting the urgent needs of the poorest communities and seeing all people flourish!

Our athlete partners are dedicating their stats to making a difference beyond the scoreboard this season. That means every strikeout, hit, or stolen base can make an impact. See how you can join in!

In Camaron, the only water source was a 45 minute walk, which most families traveled three to four times a day. Striking Out Poverty transformed the community providing access to a water source directly in their community. Hear from Roberto Clemente Jr, Dee Gordon and others on how their passion for baseball has combined with their passion for helping people in need.



Learn how players and FH came together in 2014 to address the needs for communities in the Dominican Republic.
