MEDIA ALERT: BUCCANEERS ROOKIE CLUB TO SERVE MEALS AT TRINITY CAFE ON TUESDAY

On Tuesday, September 15, the 2015 Buccaneers Rookie Club, including Jameis Winston, Donovan Smith, Ali Marpet, and Kwon Alexander, will join together to serve lunch to the underserved community at Trinity Cafe. Approximately 300 guests will receive a restaurant-quality meal from Trinity Cafe while interacting with the Buccaneers players from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
 
Trinity Cafe has been a lifeline for the community in Tampa Bay since 2001, having served more than one million meals. Executive Chef Alfred Astl plans and serves more than 285 meals each day, 365 days a year. Trinity Cafe’s mission is to restore a sense of dignity to those in need of support while serving a nutritious meal.
 
Tuesday’s visit coincides with Hunger Action Month™, a nationwide campaign created by Feeding Tampa Bay, which takes place each September. Throughout the month, the public is encouraged to take action on the issue of hunger, bringing greater attention to hunger struggles in the U.S. and promoting ways for people to get involved in the movement to fight it.
 
Throughout the year, the Buccaneers rookies will participate in a variety of outreach activities as members of the Buccaneers Rookie Club, the team’s longstanding effort to engage its youngest players with the local community. In 2015, the group has already gone bowling with Tampa Fire Rescue, taken a trip to James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital to spend time with wounded warriors, and visited MacDill Air Force Base to greet local servicemen and servicewomen stationed in Tampa.
