Philadelphia Eagles safety Rodney McLeod has been named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. From the NFLPA’s website:

“[...] for distributing 40,000 pounds of fresh food for families while also providing polling information and opportunities for voter registration on site.

“I am honored to receive this acknowledgment by the NFLPA and count it a special privilege to be named a Community MVP,” McLeod said.

The Super Bowl champion safety dropped off 2,000 boxes of food to Philadelphia’s Share Food Program as part of his “Everybody Eats Every Month” initiative. Similar efforts spearheaded by McLeod and his Change Our Future foundation will take place every month during the 2020 NFL season to grant access to fresh groceries for those struggling to afford food due to COVID-19 while fighting hunger in the region.”

The Eagles are obviously struggling on the field right now but it’s good to see one of their players making a positive impact in the community. You can learn more about McLeod’s foundation at https://changeourfuture.org.

As an NFLPA Community MVP award winner, McLeod is eligible for the annual Alan Page Award, which is the highest honor that the NFLPA can bestow upon a player.​ Former Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins (2017) and Chris Long (2018) previously earned this honor.
