Notre Dame Football players help deliver food donation

NOW: Notre Dame Football players help deliver food donation

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Players from the Notre Dame football team are giving back to the community by delivering food to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.

Around 2600 pounds of assorted pork were provided to the food bank courtesy of a donation made by the state of Iowa.

The players and personnel who volunteered say that it is rewarding to help those who are less fortunate.

“We’re providing an essential basic human need to those individuals who have given us so much and to our program and supported us through thick and thin and it means the world,” Hunter Bivin said, the Director of Player Development with Notre Dame football.

The food bank says that the donation will provide up to 1900 meals, impacting numerous families across the northern Indiana region.

The donations were made after Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb made a wager with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds on the Camping World Bowl. Notre Dame played Iowa State in that game. The loser state would have to donate to the winner state’s food banks.

Iowa lost, and now their donation is benefiting many families in Indiana.
