Fans asked to participate in SEC food drive
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Gator football fans are encouraged to bring canned goods and other non-perishable foods to the Alltel Wireless Fan Fest prior to the Saturday Sept. 29 game against Auburn. The collection will benefit Gainesville area food banks, and is part of the Southeastern Conference’s “Together We Can” food drive.
In addition to fan donations, individual Gator sports teams have been collecting foods. All items will be combined for a university-wide donation, and the SEC will announce the league total of all schools on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
Fan Fest opens at 4 p.m. Saturday, near Gate 2 of the O’Connell Center.
