7 area ACC alumni clubs launch the ACC Food Fight food drive to benefit Second Harvest
For years, Second Harvest Food Bank has taken a stand against hunger in our community. It’s time for community members to return the favor.
This fall, seven area Atlantic Coast Conference alumni clubs – representing Clemson University, Duke University, Florida State University, the University of North Carolina, the University of Virginia, Wake Forest University and Virginia Tech – have partnered together to combat hunger in New Orleans. Launched last week at each of our respective game watch parties, the ACC Food Fight is a mock competition designed to collect more than 1,000 pounds of food for Second Harvest Food Bank.
Here’s some figurative food for thought: more than 50% of New Orleans residents are below the poverty line. One in eight people in Louisiana struggle with hunger.
But many of us can – and should – help, particularly in these uncertain economic times.
You, too, can make a difference. Just a few dry food or canned good items can help feed a family as we approach Thanksgiving.
We’re all fortunate enough to call New Orleans home – let’s be part of what continues to make it so wonderful.
How can you help? Bring canned goods and dry food items to every game watch and club event between now and Thursday, November 17.
Our goal? To collect 1,000 lbs. of food to make a difference in our community.
Can’t make it to a game watch? Join us at a special happy hour/game watch for UNC-Virginia Tech on Thursday, November 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mid-City Bulldog (5135 Canal Blvd., New Orleans).
