New Orleans Saints Offensive Lineman Jon Stinchcomb and Former NFL Player Matt Stinchcomb Provides Food to Children and Families in Need

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Georgia natives Jon and Matt Stinchcomb are teaming up with Feed The Children to provide 400 families with boxes of food and personal care items on Tuesday, May 26 at 10 a.m. to HT Edwards Learning Center, located at 440 Dearing Extension in Athens. Both Jon and Matt graduated from the University of Georgia.

Feed The Children, working with partner agency The Stinchcomb Family Foundation, will provide a box of food and personal care items to recipients. The boxes are designed to help supplement a family for up to one week.

“We are so grateful for Jon and Matt Stinchcomb and The Stinchcomb Family Foundation,” said Larry Jones, founder and president of Feed The Children. “Four hundred families will receive food because of this generous gift of kindness.”

Jon Stinchcomb’s contributions to the Saints have played a large part in the offensive line emerging as one of the club’s strengths over the last two years. In 2007, the Saints allowed an NFL-low 16 sacks, despite leading the league with 652 pass attempts. Equally adept at opening creases for running backs or protecting the quarterback in passing situations, Stinchcomb has started the last 50 regular-season games at right tackle. Known for his work ethic and as one of the strongest players on the roster, he was originally drafted 37th overall in the 2003 NFL Draft, and re-signed a contract in Mary 2009.

Matt Stinchcomb is a former football offensive tackle, who played for the University of Georgia, the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was a two-time All-American at Georgia (1997 and 1998). Matt was selected as the 18th pick of the first round in the 1999 draft to the Oakland Raiders.
