Coca-Cola, Bi-Lo and Harvest Hope Food Bank partnered with the Gamecocks this season to help beat hunger with each touchdown. For every touchdown scored by the Gamecocks this season, Coca-Cola is donating 100 food items to Harvest Hope Food Bank. So far this season, Coke has donated 2,100 items. Local area Bi-Lo stores are getting in on the action too by collecting food at their stores in bins next to the Coca-Cola display.
Gamecock fans can help beat hunger too on Nov 14th by bringing a food item to the Florida game to donate to Harvest Hope Food Bank. Collection bins will be located at each gate at Williams Brice Stadium on gameday. Fans that bring a donated food item will get a Buy One Get One Free 2 Liter coupon. Fans can bring a canned or boxed food item to the gate and drop it in the collection bin.
All donations will go directly to Harvest Hope Food Bank. Harvest Hope Food Bank operates in 20 counties in South Carolina. Last year, the network distributed 19 million pounds of food.
