Farmers Union Insurance has teamed up with the state’s Expedition League baseball teams to offer fans limited-edition baseball jerseys in exchange for food items or cash donations to the Great Plains Food Bank.

“The Expedition League is proud to partner with two great organizations, Farmers Union Insurance and the Great Plains Food Bank,” said Steve Wagner, president of the Expedition League. “One of the key tenets of the Expedition League’s mission statement is to positively contribute to each of our communities and we’re excited to be a part of these jersey giveaways and food drives in North Dakota.”

Five hundred jerseys will be given away on gameday, starting at 5 p.m., at these ballfields:

  • Dickinson Badlands Big Sticks – Tuesday, July 6
  • Minot Souris Valley Sabre Dogs – Thursday, July 8
  • Grand Forks Wheat City Whiskey Jacks – Thursday, July 22

Donation tables will be set up outside each ballfield, so game attendance is not required. Each person must bring three food items (either canned or boxed) or make a $10 cash donation to receive a jersey. Limit one jersey per person.

The Great Plains Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in North Dakota and the state’s only food bank. It works with a wide array of individuals and organizations to guide donated surplus food and grocery products to a network of 213 food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and charitable feeding programs.
