The blossoming SEC rivalry between Mizzou and the University of Arkansas extended beyond athletics as MU’s Tiger Pantry went up against UArk’s Full-Circle Food Pantry during Food Fight 2013. The event was a campus-wide food drive competition to see which school could raise the most food and funds for their respective food pantry. The food drive began February 27th and lasted until March 5th when Mizzou brought in a win against UArk in men’s basketball. By the end Food Fight, Mizzou had collected over 600 pounds of food, and $1900 in monetary donations.
After all the points were tallied, Full-Circle Food Pantry came out on top with over 7000 points. Tiger Pantry fell short with a collection of 5,745 points.
