Ezekiel Elliott uses his trademark “Feed Me” celebration on the field. Off the field, the Cowboys running back is feeding others.

Elliott announced in May he was collaborating with CentreTX to release exclusive merchandise with 100 percent of proceeds going to the North Texas Food Bank.

This week, Elliott announced the total donation is $85,000, which will help feed 400,000 North Texas families in need.

Elliott, who has recovered from COVID-19, personally delivered the check to the North Texas Food Bank.

“I am grateful to give back to the city that’s given me so much,” Elliott wrote on social media. “I am thankful for @centretx and YOU my fans for raising enough money to help feed over 400,000 families in North Texas this summer. I hope that this money helps provide much needed relief for those that are currently challenged. I’m looking forward to teaming up with @centretx and @northtexasfoodbank in the future to keep providing meals for those in need in our communities.”

  1. Unless he’s Jesus Christ his math doesn’t work. That amounts to $.2125 per family. Not even going to buy them a ramen noodle.

  2. Truly a great thing that he did. But feed 400,000 families with 85k? That’s 21 cents per family. A family of 4, that’s like 5 cents per person. A great gesture, nonetheless, but the math doesn’t add up.

    No one ever accused Elliot of being a mathematician, or even half-smart for that matter.

  4. Apparently 21 cents goes a lot farther in North Texas than anyone ever realized.

  5. I will never understand why these people raise money to feed families. He couldn’t just write a check for double that amount?

    If that’s the case, then it’s $2.12 per family. Muuuuuch better…………

  8. Hard to insult a guy in this situation, but either that’s an outright lie or the guy is dumb as a box of rocks.

  9. There is some incredible reading comprehension going on here. The irony in the comments is hysterical.
