Every seat in this Arena represented a child in need.

No child, no matter where they live, should have to face hunger and malnutrition. So, we teamed up with athletes and artists, rallied SMASHVILLE fans and reached 50 million people across the USA to respond to the global food crisis.


Together, we changed children’s lives, one meal at a time.

We fought global hunger, SMASHVILLE-style.

The Nashville Predators partnered with Compassion International and local nonprofits to make sure fewer children went hungry and suffered during the global food crisis.

Compassion International and the Predators Foundation provided emergency food kits.
