Bay Area food banks challenge Cleveland food bank to fundraising contest

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Alameda County Community Food Bank is putting Cleveland on notice and laying down the challenge once again, as the food banks vie for dominance in the food court.

They're having an online fundraising competition to see who can bring in the most dough during the NBA Finals.

"We're throwing down the gauntlet to our friends in Cleveland. What we hope is to put a big dent in hunger, have some fun rivalry, and get fans engaged in our work," Suzan Bateson said.

The mayors of Alameda and Cleveland cities launched the competition in place of the more traditional city hall wagers. And the SF-Marin Food Bank has also gotten in on the challenge.

You can help to end hunger now and meet the challenge. See the links below to find out how you can help.
