MIAMI – The Miami Marlins donated their millionth meal in their COVID-19 relief initiative on Wednesday, and CEO Derek Jeter was there to mark the milestone.

Jeter and the team started the distributions as part of a joint effort with Feeding South Florida just over a year ago.

The team’s Home Plate Meals Relief Fund aims to help families in need, especially during the pandemic.
