The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Arizona State and University of Arizona football fans don’t agree on much, but they do have a chance to work together before Saturday’s annual showdown at Sun Devil Stadium and to help those in the state struggling to feed their families.
The first annual “Territorial Cup Series Food Fight,” sponsored by State Farm Insurance, will take place outside the stadium in the hours leading up to kickoff. Demand has doubled for emergency holiday food boxes during the early stages of this holiday season, and St. Mary’s Food Bank is hoping fans from both teams will help with donations of non-perishable food and cash that will go immediately to work in 13 of Arizona’s 15 counties.
Volunteers from ASU4Food and State Farm Insurance will be stationed at numerous food-drop locations surrounding the stadium. The ASU4Food group is also holding a raffle and those who donate are eligible to win a football or Sun Devil Stadium panoramic photo autographed by ASU coach Dennis Erickson.
