Bowl Localizes Support in Bay AreaFans will not only be able to witness a competitive matchup on the football field, they will also be able to help make a difference by attending on game-day. For every bowl game ticket purchased, the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will donate one meal to the San Francisco Food Bank, Glide Memorial Church and St. Anthony's Dining Room. As in years past, players and coaches from Navy and Arizona State University also plan to volunteer at Bay Area food pantries in the days leading up to the bowl game.
"With numerous hunger-awareness activities planned for the players during their stay in San Francisco, we are committed to helping alleviate hunger in the Bay area," said Gary Cavalli, Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Executive Director. "Allowing players an opportunity to volunteer in an extremely deprived part of the city is unique to our game and authentic to our mission to make a positive impact on our community."
