Food Bank Partner Sign-up Competition Extended to September 15 with New "Suite" Incentive

Food banks around the country have engaged in a friendly competition all month long to get the most food donors to sign up as participants in the U.S. Food Waste Challenge, with the food bank that signs up the most donors to be honored in an event hosted by the Department of Agriculture.  We are now extending the deadline for the competition to September 15th .  To help provide an extra incentive, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, owner of the Washington Capitals, Mystics, Wizards and Verizon Center, is donating six suite tickets through their foundation to either an NBA or NHL game at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. for the 2014-15 season to the winning food bank.   

Food bank donors and partners can join the competition by signing up for the U.S. Food Waste Challenge on Feeding America’s website and listing the activities they will undertake to help reduce, recover, or recycle food waste in their operations.
