MERIDIAN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The University of Idaho is the winner of this year’s Food Fight, a competition between the University of Idaho and Idaho State University to raise money and food for food-insecure Idahoans.

Donations went to the school’s food pantries, while financial donations went to the Idaho foodbank. The University of Idaho raised $2,429 while also donating 1,441 pounds of food. Combined, both universities provided enough food for more than 16,000 meals.

“We appreciate the support of both the University of Idaho and the Idaho State University communities,” said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “This fun and friendly competition ultimately benefits Idahoans who are in need of food assistance.”
