San Diego colleges, UC San Diego, San Diego State University, and California State University San Marcos are taking part in a food drive competition sponsored by the Hard Rock Hotel.

Throughout the month of October students, administrators and academic staff will collect food and monetary donations on campuses to the help the Food Bank meet the high level of need over the coming holiday season.

The prize for the winning school is a life-sized “guitar trophy” with the name of the school engraved on the front, and the name of the winning school will be projected on the side of the Hard Rock Hotel for a week.

The food donated through the Colleges Rock Hunger Food Drive will be the first official donation to the Food Bank’s Holiday Food Drive which will be of enormous significance this year due to the increase in demand the Food Bank sees from families in need over the holiday season.

The Food Bank thanks all of the colleges for their amazing support!
