Black out Hunger on Black Saturday Oct. 29

blackouthunger_t.jpgDid you know many of your fellow Mountaineers deal with hunger-related issues on a daily basis? One out of six people in Western North Carolina are food insecure. Founded to relieve hunger and poverty in the High Country, the Watauga County Hunger and Health Coalition is in critical need of food donations.

The Appalachian Student Ambassadors, in partnership with the Hunger and Health Coalition, are encouraging all fans to bring canned foods and non-perishable items to the football game Saturday, Oct. 29.

Special needs include instant oatmeal, peanut butter and cereal, but all donations are greatly appreciated. Drop-off points will be located at the ticket plaza and the East and West gates prior to the 3 p.m. kickoff. Please join in an effort to feed families in Boone and the surrounding community.
