Students from Auburn University and the University of Alabama together collected more than 1 million pounds of food for the second consecutive year through a friendly competition to fight food insecurity in Alabama.
Auburn won this year’s competition with its Beat Bama Food Drive, raising 686,807 pounds of food from Sept. 29 to Nov. 16, a school record. The food was donated to the Food Bank of East Alabama.
The University of Alabama’s Beat Auburn Beat Hunger food drive raised 326,644 pounds of food, enough to provide more than 272,000 meals through the West Alabama Food Bank, which serves nine counties in West Alabama.
