The Alabama – Auburn Food Fight
Beat Auburn Beat HungerIn November there is more competition between the University of Alabama and Auburn University than just the 60 minute fight on the football field. For the 20th year in a row, the students at both schools participate in a fight of their own -- a food fight. Students work all month to collect canned goods in a campaign those in Tuscaloosa call "Beat Auburn, Beat Hunger”. UA’s Community Service Center has set a goal of collecting 275,000 pounds of food. In 2012, the same competition collected 266,737 pounds of food. The West Alabama Food Bank will receive the food collected by the University of Alabama, it will be used to help feed those in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. There have been many events to help raise awareness and to collect goods throughout the month including a 5k run, a Stamp Out Hunger letter writing event, a tailgate football game and much more. Both schools should be proud of the amount of food that was collected. Auburn collected 169,702 pounds of food during the drive. However, The University of Alabama came out on top and Beat Auburn with a total of 299,398 pounds of food. Roll Tide!
