The South Dakota State Student-Athlete Advisory Committee presented the Brookings Area Food Pantry with a check Friday for the money raised during the 2013-14 Summit League Food Fight.

Jackrabbit student-athletes Steph Paluch, Zach Zenner and Nicole Grimit presented the check for the money SAAC raised throughout the Food Fight drive, a sum of $4,026.12.

SDSU SAAC previously delivered over 5,000 pounds of food and cash donations that were made payable directly to the Food Pantry in February. In total, SAAC raised over 25,000 pounds of food during the Food Fight with every five-dollar donation equaling 13 pounds of food. 

South Dakota State captured The Summit League’s 2013-14 “Food Fight” title by raising over 25,300 pounds of food, increasing its winning total from 2012-13 by over 2,800 lbs. The Summit League designated 16 "Food Fight" games during the basketball season and collected donations at the basketball championships with the eight league member institutions combining to raise over 58,800 lbs.

SDSU also won the Food Fight in 2009-10 and in 2012-13.
