"Monarchs for Meals" Asks Football Fans to Bring Canned Goods to Oct. 31 Game Against Georgetown

Football fans are being asked to bring a canned good to benefit the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia to the "Monarchs for Meals" day Saturday, Oct. 31, when the Old Dominion University Monarchs take on the Georgetown Hoyas at 6 p.m. at Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium.

Monarchs Head Coach Bobby Wilder is serving as honorary chairman of the drive, which ODU officials are hoping to make an annual event during the football season.

According to the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia, the bad economy and high unemployment rates make food bank services in higher demand than ever.

The top items that are especially needed include peanut butter, chunky soups, canned meats, canned tuna, canned vegetables, juice, cereal, macaroni and cheese, pasta and pasta sauces.

Collection bins manned by volunteers will be located throughout the campus at tailgating areas and at the entrances to Foreman Field.

Specific donation locations include:


1 - Silver Lot

2 - Gate A

1 - Blue Lot (WHRO)

1 - 49th Street and Bluestone (also Truck location)
