Stock Up For the Annual Food Drive For Loaves and Fishes


Loaves and Fishes is a non-profit emergency food program created in 1975 to meet the grocery needs of people in crisis situations in Charlotte. Loaves and Fishes sees its mission as providing a helping hand during an acute crisis, not a hand-out which fosters dependency. Individual donations represent a large source of food donations and funding.

The Charlotte Buckeyes hold an annual Food Drive, usually mid-November, held at each of our game day locations.  And we always have at least two "enticement" prizes to encourage participation.


Here's how to win:

1) The person who donates the most items gets to choose which gift they'd like. Any item less than 10 oz will count as half an item (ex, snack packs).

A $1.00 donation counts as one item.  Since it's not easy to carry cases of food into game watches, we will do the shopping for you!  You can also purchase tickets online.

3) All donors will receive one raffle ticket for every 10 items they donate. One raffle ticket will be drawn from all contributors for the remaining gift. If the raffle ticket drawn belongs to winner # 1, another raffle ticket will be drawn.

If you purchase tickets online, you do NOT have to be at one the gamewatches to win one of the gifts. We will contact you if you either 1) made the largest donation or 2) have your name drawn from all contributors.  


This has been one of the Charlotte Buckeyes big Community Service Projects since 2009; Pay It Forward and make a difference.
