OU Game is "Sack Hunger Day" at Jack Trice Stadium
AMES, Iowa - When the Iowa State football team plays Oklahoma Saturday, it will be "Sack Hunger Day" at Jack Trice Stadium.
More than 400,000 Iowans, including nearly 140,000 children, struggle against hunger. Helping fight this problem is the Iowa Food Bank Association, a collaboration of eight Feeding America food banks that serve all 99 counties in the state of Iowa.
Together the food banks help provide 16 million meals a year by distributing food to nearly 1,000 non-profit agencies which feed hungry Iowans. Hunger exists in every community in our state, and the Iowa Food Bank Association challenges all Iowans to learn about what hunger looks like in their community, and take action!
Cyclone Sports Properties has partnered with Hy-Vee and Farm Credit Services of America to sack hunger in Iowa.
As a part of the "Sack Hunger" program, Hy-Vee is taking non-perishable food and cash donations in Ames Grocery stores as well as around the perimeter of Jack Trice Stadium at Saturday's football game.
There are three locations where donations can be made: the Hy-Vee Express on the north patio, the Hy-Vee Truck on the east side of South 4th Street and the Hy-Vee truck near the south entrance of the stadium. Fans are being asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the game or make a $10 or $20 donation to provide critical necessities for the upcoming holiday seasons.
Also, Farm Credit Services of America is donating $1,000 for every quarterback sack by the Cyclones during the season.
Thank you for helping Sack Hunger in Iowa!
