The Nashville Predators have announced a new "Eat With Us" initiative to help the surrounding community cope with the changing landscape during the coronavirus pandemic.
"The Preds mantra is simple, just do what is right for our fans, sponsors and community," Predators chief revenue officer Chris Junghans told the team's website. "During these trying times, our 'Eat With Us' campaign serves as the umbrella between our food partners and individuals in our community in need of support and encouragement."
From players individually donating money to the team's sponsors and partners stepping up in the Nashville area, the Predators are working to provide meals and coffee to various local police departments and medical care workers who are working tirelessly on the front lines.
The team has also helped send 5,000 pounds of food from Bridgestone Arena to the nashville Rescue Mission and Room In The Inn while sending 12,000 pairs of gloves to medical personnel in Nashville.
In addition to essentials, the "Eat With Us" initiative is also trying to help keep Predators fans entertained. They have teamed up with sponsors to bring fans replays of classic games and moments as well as brand new downloadable video games.
