INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Colts and WISH-TV teamed up Tuesday for the 3rd Annual Million Meal Marathon to Help Relieve Hunger.
WISH-TV Sportslocker Analyst and Indianapolis Colt Cory Redding is the spokesperson for the event.
Each day, more than 14,000 children die from malnutrition, starvation and hunger-related diseases. One in five Hoosiers is hungry.
Other players, including Dwayne Allen, stopped by to help fight hunger.
"No matter what I do on the football field, that's going to come and go,” Cory Redding said. “My time in the NFL is going to last as long as I still play. But the hearts that we touch through my foundation, the Indianapolis Colts, through people who volunteer, the hearts we touch will go on forever and that to me means more to me than any tackle or sack that I could make of the football field."
24-Hour News 8’s Sports Director Anthony Calhoun helped pack meals at Tuesday’s event.
More than 4,000 volunteers worked hard to pack the nutritious meals, consisting of rice, soy, vitamins, and dehydrated vegetables.
The meals will then be distributed through Gleaners, Midwest Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana.
