The annual Beat Bama Food Drive kicks off on Thursday, October 1st, and runs through Thursday, November 19th. This is a student-organized event with a mission to educate, unite, and serve the Auburn University campus and greater surrounding communities by supporting the Food Bank of East Alabama to fight food insecurity through friendly competition with the University of Alabama. The vision of Beat Bama Food Drive is to drastically alleviate hunger in the state of Alabama and ensure residents are educated on the causes and effects of food injustice.

Your food donation at one of the barrels located across the Auburn University campus or at participating businesses will not only help Auburn regain the title by collecting the most food but will also benefit your neighbors who may be food insecure.
