90 KRAFT FIGHT HUNGER BOWL PLAYERS TO VOLUNTEER FOR GLIDE’S FREE MEALS PROGRAM SATURDAY, JANUARY 8 FROM 11:30AM TO 1:30PM

WHAT: Ninety Nevada football players from the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (Nevada vs. Boston College) will volunteer by serving the poor and  marginalized during GLIDE’s free lunch service on Saturday, January 8 from 11:30am to 1:30pm.

The football players from Nevada will take a trip to GLIDE, which serves over a million free meals a year. By volunteering, the athletes will not only directly help the Bay Area hunger crisis, but they will gain awareness and a new perspective and hopefully be inspired to continue to give back to their own communities.

The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is committed to advancing Kraft Foods' cause of providing 20 million meals to needy families and has partnered with three local nonprofits to help tackle hunger in the Bay Area.

“Glide is thrilled to be a part of the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and its commitment to tackle hunger here in the Bay Area and beyond,” said Reverend Cecil Williams, Glide’s Minister of Liberation.  “We appreciate the help of Kraft and the athletes in serving those who are most in need.”

WHEN: Saturday, January 8
Lunchtime: 11:30am to 1:30pm

WHERE: GLIDE, 330 Ellis Street (at Taylor), San Francisco
