Congrats to fans of the Seattle Seahawks who led their team to victory in the Kick Hunger Challenge® — an online fundraiser that pit fans from all 32 NFL teams against each other in a “friendly competition” throughout the NFL season to raise money for food banks in NFL communities nationwide.
The Seahawks’ Kick Hunger Challenge team was led by Taste of the NFL chef representative John Howie of Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar and Craig Terrill, defensive tackle for the Seahawks. Together with fans, they raised $33,000 for Food Lifeline, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington. As champions of the Kick Hunger Challenge, the Seattle team will receive an additional $10,000 to share with Food Lifeline for a grand total donation of $44,000.
Rounding out the top three, the New England Patriots raised $19,300 to come in second place and the Atlanta Falcons came in third with $15,250. Thanks to all who participated in the Kick Hunger Challenge and stay tuned for the 2013-14 kick-off in September!
