Subway High School All-Star Fans Donate 1,200 Pounds of Food

The 2011-12 Subway High School All-Star Series Presented by the Andrews Institute was more than just playing sports, recognizing tremendous athletes, and having fun; it was about helping a great cause and helping feed the hungry.  Over the five all-star events – volleyball, football, soccer, basketball, and baseball and softball – fans attending the games donated more than 1,200 pounds of food at the gate to be given to the Manna Food Pantry.

Fans were encouraged to bring canned good items and non-perishable foods to the games to receive a discount off the ticket price.  After each all-star game, the Pensacola Sports Association (PSA) delivered the food to the Manna Food Pantry located in downtown Pensacola.

Manna Food Pantry distributes their food in bundles big enough to feed a person for five days.  1,200 pounds of food is equivalent to feeding up to 40 people for five days.

“The PSA’s slogan is ‘Sports…More Than Just a Game!’,” said PSA’s Executive Director Ray Palmer.  “We are proud of the Subway High School All-Star Series, its fans, parents, and supporters to help us further promote our mission and help other organizations and people who are in need.”

The 2012-13 Subway High School All-Star Series will begin in November, 2012 with the all-star volleyball game.  Dates and venues of all the all-star events will be announced in the coming weeks.
