Turnover Hunger this football season

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

Program benefits local kids facing food insecurity

(MILAN, Ind.) -- Local schoolchildren will benefit each time Milan or Batesville football forces a turnover this year.


Turnover Hunger is a program supported by the Ripley County Community Foundation in partnership with the Milan Indians and Batesville Bulldogs football teams.


To participate, you may pledge a dollar amount for every turnover forced, or you may make a flat donation in support of each team’s effort.


At the end of the season, all pledges will be collected and donations will be granted to Batesville Primary School, Jac-Cen-Del Elementary School, Milan Elementary School, South Ripley Elementary School, and Sunman Elementary School.


The funds will go to the Weekend Back Sack Program which provides elementary school students who suffer from severe food insecurity with a backpack of kid-friendly, nonperishable food for the weekend.


Nearly 700 children in Ripley County are considered food insecure, according to the Indiana County Data Book.


More than 20 percent of those kids live in a home which does not qualify for Federal and State Nutrition programs.


"The growth from raising around $1500 year one to about $15,000 each of the past two years is amazing. These efforts have not just impacted Batesville kids but multiple school districts in the area. So, for our programs to not only help within our community but help plenty of other communities is a great precedent to set," said Batesville head coach Evan Ulery.


The Weekend Backpack Program relies solely upon charitable donations.
