DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions and Ford Motor Co. are teaming up to fight hunger in the city.

The football team and automaker are trying to bring awareness to the Meet Up & Eat Up program.

Children who regularly eat free or reduced-price school meals and need access to food in the summer months are encouraged to visit Meet Up & Eat Up sites.

Lions players, alumni and team mascot Roary will be at a number of the sites over the coming weeks.

The Lions signed Bush as a free agent before last season and  the elusive running back ran for 1,006 yards, the second-highest total of his career. But so far this season, Detroit's running game has been quiet, and that's something the Lions hope to change when they host Green Bay on Sunday.(AP Photo/Mike McCarn, File)
