GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers raised more than $100,000 for the hungry, just by scoring touchdowns.

During the regular season, Sargento donated $1,000 to the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force and $500 to Paul's Pantry in Green Bay for each of the Packer's 53 touchdowns scored.

Sargento doubled the touchdown contributions in the postseason, resulting in an additional $21,000 donation on seven TDs.

In total, Sargento donated $67,000 to the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force and $33,500 to Paul's Pantry.

Sargento has contributed $920,500 to the two Wisconsin food charities over the last 10 years of the "Touchdowns for Charity" program.
