Territorial Cup Rivalry Heating Up and Expands to Include Food Fight
Nov. 23, 2009
In a unique partnership with Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, State Farm Insurance is sponsoring the Territorial Cup Series Food Fight. The purpose of the Food Fight is to collect as much food as possible at the Territorial Cup football game on November 28, at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.
This year more than ever, local Arizona food banks need more contributions to help meet the increased demand from people needing assistance. State Farm is challenging all fans attending the annual grudge match between the ASU Sun Devils and the Arizona Wildcats to bring non-perishable food to the Territorial Cup football game on Saturday, November 28th. There will be numerous food drop locations surrounding Sun Devil Stadium. Look for boxes marked with St. Mary's Food Bank and people wearing State Farm T-Shirts to assist you.
Recipient of the donated food will be St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix. 'St. Mary's challenge is to ease hunger in Arizona. We are thankful for the partnership with ASU4Food and State Farm, this unique partnership goes a long way in helping us meet that challenge' said Ernesto Ortiz, Food Resource Developer, St. Mary's Food Bank. During games that occur in Tucson, The Community Food Bank which serves Tucson and Pima Counties will be the recipient of food donations.
'The aim of our partnership is to not only spotlight athletic programs offered by each university, but also to help alleviate hunger in the community and address the educational funding challenges each university is currently experiencing,' said State Farm Vice President-Agency Mike Dannewitz. 'State Farm is proud to be a part of such a storied past of two nationally renowned universities, and we wish luck to both schools in the State Farm Territorial Cup.'
