North Dakota State University’s Student-Athlete Advisory Council competed in the Summit League “Food Fight” for the seventh consecutive season and raised 1,457 pounds of donations.
The organization collected food and cash donations during the men’s basketball home finale against IPFW at Scheels Arena and the women’s basketball finale against Denver at the Bentson Bucker Fieldhouse.
The items collected this spring went toward the Alba Bales House on the NDSU campus and the rest was donated to local food banks around the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The Summit League “Food Fight” is a yearly competition between conference members to raise food for local food shelves in their communities. The Summit League designated 18 “Food Fight” games during the basketball season and the conference raised 84,000 pounds of food this season. South Dakota State won its third-straight title by raising 34,681.07 pounds, the largest amount by a school in any year and the food was donated to the Brookings Area Food Pantry.[/text_output]
