Football feeding frenzy begins
The N.C. High School Athletic Association is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and NCHSAA member schools can get involved with a special community service event related to the celebration, the NCHSAA Football Feeding Frenzy.
The NCHSAA Football Feeding Frenzy is partnering with the North Carolina Association of Feeding America Food Banks, and there will be two ways member schools can help tackle hunger.
One category revolves around the donation of time. Food banks work on a network of volunteers, and one school in each of the NCHSAA’s four classes volunteering the most service hours, based on the percentage of students to volunteer hours, will be recognized during the NCHSAA state football championships and will receive a Commissioner’s Cup.
Volunteers can be at a local food bank or working on a project to benefit a local food bank, such as creating food bank awareness posters.
The local food bank can let interested students know what opportunities are available there, since volunteer slots may be limited.
The other category involves the donation of money. Every dollar donated to a North Carolina food bank can provide nearly $5 worth of food for those who need it.
One school in each of the NCHSAA’s classifications which raises the most funds, based on the percentage of students to money raised, will also receive a Commissioner’s Cup.
The competition runs through Nov. 8. The Feeding Frenzy packet at nchsaa.org has details on how schools may participate.
