VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The Second Harvest Food Bank in Valdosta hopes to have a Winnersville competition of its own.

They'll place bins at each entrance of to Bazemore Hyder stadium.

They wants Vikings and Wildcats fans to take canned food to the game Friday night.

Then they'll count the cans and announce which school donated the most by the end of the game.

Food bank officials say the food drive will help them stock up as they begin their busiest time of year.

"Right now we are moving into the cold months and the holiday season. Donations are typically lower this time anyway and with the economic situation, we've had a very big increase of foot traffic that we've had through here," says Shannon Zapf from Second Harvest.

They hope to collect 10,000 pounds of food.
