UW hosting canned food drive Saturday

The University of Wyoming will "Celebrate Agriculture Day" this Saturday's football game versus Northern Colorado. Cowboy fans are asked to bring a canned food item or two to donate to the Farm Bureau's "Harvest for All" program. The food will benefit the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies (WFBR); Wyoming's only food bank, which serves all 23 counties.

According to the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies, nearly one in 10 Wyoming citizens struggle with putting enough food on the table.
Donations will make a difference in the WFBR's work to fight hunger in Wyoming. Every 1.28 pounds of food donated equals one meal.

Canned goods will be collected at the Wyoming Farm Bureau's tent at Tailgate Park from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on game day. The first 1 - thousand fans to donate canned food will receive a Wyoming t-shirt.
