INDIANAPOLIS – On Tuesday, September 30, the Indianapolis Colts visited the Hunger Relief Kitchen at Second Helpings, Inc. to help prepare food with volunteers. The visit was a part of the fifth "Colts Community Tuesday" of the 2014 season.

Second Helpings is a local food rescue charity that provides meals to children, adults and families who face hunger every day. The visit coincided with the Colts commitment to promoting nutritious meals through initiatives such as the NFL PLAY 60 program and other hunger relief efforts.

Colts OLB Daniel Adongo, CB Josh Gordy, OLB Cam Johnson, ILB Henoc Muamba, OLB Erik Walden and OLB Bjoern Werner began the visit by signing their names next to other volunteers on a flag hanging from the wall. The flag is symbolic of Second Helpings' commitment to making one million meals in 2014.

After learning about the culinary job training program and the 3,000-plus meals served by Second Helpings each day, the players were excited to assist volunteers in cooking up some fresh food. Dicing fifty pounds of onions was on the menu for the players. Following a lesson in chopping, the gloves came off for the players to take a tour of the facility and learn more about the various social service agencies that benefit from Second Helpings' meals.

Colts players visited Second Helpings and Springhurst Health Campus as part of the "Community Tuesday" program.
