Kickoff College Football Season with a Friendly Battle of the Food Banks! As both LSU and Florida State football teams prepare for their season opener against each other on September 4th in New Orleans, your respective local Food Banks have issued a Hunger Blitz Fundraising Challenge to each other to see who can raise the most funds leading up to the game in the spirit of competition.
Just like in the game, it’s a classic 11 vs. 11 matchup of Food Banks who both want to win for the people they serve. Second Harvest of the Big Bend serves 11 counties in the Greater Tallahassee area and the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank serves 11 parishes in the Greater Baton Rouge area. While that number makes for a full field and a great matchup, our aim is to raise funds through this friendly challenge to fill the plates of the food insecure in our local communities.
Join us in this fun-spirited challenge to support your friends and neighbors in need. Fans can show your home Food Bank team some support today by donating online at one of the Hunger Blitz links below. So how about it – who are you pulling for?
Want to see how it all began and what’s at stake? Watch this challenge video issued by Monique Ellsworth, CEO of Second Harvest of the Big Bend to Mike Manning, President and CEO of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
