Block Out Hunger
For the seventh consecutive season, Wisconsin-based Cousins Subs and the world champion Milwaukee Bucks team up to fight hunger across the state through the Block Out Hunger campaign. In honor of the brand’s 50th anniversary, Cousins Subs and its Make It Better Foundation will donate $50 for every shot the Bucks block during the 2021-22 regular season to Hunger Task Force to purchase nutritious milk for the nearly 50,000 Wisconsin families the nonprofit organization and its affiliate food pantries serve.

Last season the Milwaukee Bucks blocked 334 shots, resulting in a $16,700 donation from Cousins Subs to Hunger Task Force.
Since its inception in the 2015-16 season, the Block Out Hunger campaign has raised more than $115,000 to support Hunger Task Force and its affiliated pantries across the state of Wisconsin.

The Bucks and Cousins Subs have added Hunger Task Force to the roster, which puts this team in prime position to take on hunger in Wisconsin. In Wisconsin, nearly one in 11 people struggle with hunger. Campaigns such as Block Out Hunger are key players in the fight against hunger in our local communities.
