Lee Janzen / Feed The Children Food Drop


Greensboro, NC. (Aug. 17, 2009) International hunger relief organization Feed The Children is pleased to announce two-time U.S. Open Golf Champion Lee Janzen will host a food distribution at Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank, 305 W. Lee Street on Tuesday, August 18 at 3 p.m.

Feed The Children and Lee Janzen remain committed to helping children in need throughout America during this economic downturn.

Feed The Children, working with local partner agency Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank, will provide a box of food and a box of personal care items to recipients. The boxes are designed to help supplement a family for up to one week.

“We are incredibly thankful that Lee Janzen has partnered with Feed The Children for this food distribution in Greensboro,” said Larry Jones, founder and president of Feed The Children. “Lee has a servant’s heart for struggling families during this difficult economic time and he is committed to reaching out to those in need during his travels on the PGA TOUR.”

Janzen has won eight times on the PGA Tour, most notably the 1993 and 1998 U.S. Open. In 1993, Janzen defeated Payne Stewart at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey, en route to tying the 72-hole U.S. Open scoring record of 8-under par. Five years later, Janzen again bested Stewart to win his second U.S. Open, this time at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
