Posted: 10/15/2013 - The Hunger Bowl strikes again for the Nevada- Boise State football game on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Bronco Stadium. In addition to the food drive for the Idaho Food Bank that will take place at the game, Boise State has issued a challenge to Wolf Pack fans to compete in an online virtual food drive, to raise funds for hunger relief in both areas. Wolf Pack and Bronco fans anywhere can visit http://hungerbowl.org/virtual-food-drive and click on their team’s logo to make a cash donation. All Wolf Pack donations will go to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. All Boise State donations will be used for hunger relief in Idaho. The Hunger Bowl challenge has started and is continuing through the end of Saturday’s game on October 19. Hunger is a very serious issue across the country and right here in Nevada. One in four children in Nevada live in a home where there is not enough food for three meals per day, and one in five people in Nevada needs to seek food assistance to make ends meet. Each dollar raised for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada can provide 3 meals to those who need them.
