As fans enter the Carrier Dome for the Syracuse Men's Basketball game against Pittsburgh University, they will have the opportunity to support Food Bank of Central New York. Volunteers from the Interfaith Student Council will collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations at each entrance. All donations will be used in Food Bank of Central New York's 11-county service area of central and northern New York.
Over the past two years, the initiative has netted 2,596 pounds of food and $5,249.48 in monetary donations, providing 13,725 meals to hungry people in the local community
“As hunger is a year-round issue, we are thankful to be a partner with SU for the Can It! event,” says Kathleen Stress, executive director of the Food Bank of Central New York. “The food and funds raised at the game will go a long way in helping to provide nutritious meals to families in our service area.”
