The Los Angeles Rams are not only making their way into the hearts of the Los Angeles community through their on-field success, the team is making sure to spread holiday cheer to families through their annual “Hams for Hunger” giveaway. On Tuesday December 19, players and cheerleaders from the Rams joined volunteers from the Inglewood Police Department, Albertsons/Vons/Pavilions and Hormel at a local Vons in Inglewood, CA, to pass out 14,000 hams for families in need.
“We’re blessed to go out on that stage and do what we do, but we were out here as little kids at one moment,” said Rams linebacker Cameron Lynch, who was born in Long Beach. “It’s nice to come out here and show that we’re human too. I put this jersey on just like anyone else put their shirt on this morning.”
Once families received a ham, they were able to partake in a day filled with activities. Families participated in giveaways and games, danced to the sounds of the DJ and children were offered free face paint.

“I think ultimately what we have now is a lot of confidence,” said Rams quarterback Jared Goff. “We don’t care who lines up against us, we’re going to go out and play our game and execute to the best of our ability.”
