Each fall, the University of Missouri community makes a contribution to the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, which benefits Tiger Pantry on campus. Last year, Tigers donated more than 30,000 pounds of food.
“There have been a lot of hardships that have come with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Homecoming 2020 tri-director Macyn McClurg. “One of the biggest events that’s still happening, and can really make an impact in the Columbia community, is our canned food drive. If we’re able to make sure that Tiger Pantry and the food bank are well-stocked and better able to handle things during the pandemic, then that’s what we’re going to do.”
This year, Tiger Food Fight will be held from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9, as a drive-thru at the circle drive of the Reynolds Alumni Center.
