As the 2014-2015 football season is cooling down, things are just heating up for a new bowl game, and it’s the first of it’s kind for Central Florida! Although this is the first year Central Florida has been graced with the Defeat Hunger Bowl, it’s actually the third year for this successful national food and funds drive. Defeat Hunger Bowl looks to “defeat hunger” by teaming up with football stars for a month-long food drive at local Walmart stores. Central Floridians are encouraged to visit their local Walmart store during the month of January and “play” in the bowl game by donating non-perishable food items in the Defeat Hunger donation bins.
Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Glennon will lead the Defeat Hunger Bowl Kick-Off on Thursday, January 8th with an appearance and autograph signing at the Walmart at 3101 W. Princeton St. at 2:00 PM! The event is completely free, although bringing a non-perishable food item is encouraged. Come out and help us defeat hunger, all while meeting a sports star!
Do not fear if you are not able to make it out for kick-off. Defeat Hunger Bowl provides a month long opportunity to drop off non-perishables at any of your local Central Florida Walmart stores. Together we can rally to collect non-perishables and win this bowl game by helping defeat hunger!
