Beat Auburn Beat Hunger
Beat Auburn Beat Hunger is an annual event that was created by the Center for Sustainable Service & Volunteerism and the West Alabama Food Bank in 1994. During the six weeks leading up to the Iron Bowl, the BABH food drive unites students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members to help "fight" hunger and poverty in West Alabama. In competition with Auburn University and the Food Bank of East Alabama, BABH challenges both institutions to collect the most non-perishable food to help the hungry. This good-natured competition has made an impact that reaches far beyond the campuses where it began. Since its inception, the competition has raised nearly 3 million pounds of food for Alabamians without enough food to eat.
This year The University of Alabama raised 300,049 pounds of food for the West Alabama community.
Not only was food insecurity fought but Auburn was also beat. So it was a great year for the Alabama Crimson Tide!
