"Every family needs to have an opportunity to have a good holiday season, starting off with Thanksgiving, and no family should go without regardless of what class they're in or what race," Green said.
Green's work was a corroborative effort that included the international hunger-relief organization Feed the Children and the sports-agents group Athletes First.
Athletes First is helping distribute 75 tons of food and personal-care items in several NFL cities.
Like in many areas across the nation due to a sluggish economic recovery, the number of hungry in Brown County has increased while the amount of food donations has decreased.
Beyond just having a full stomach, though, Green said food is something that brings families together.
"It just brings their family closer together to be able to cook dinner, have fun, open presents, eat a great meal together, stuff like that," he said. "It just adds to the giving and the spirit of the holiday season," he said.
