Join The Great Creighton Nebraska Food Fight between Creighton University and the University of Nebraska to see which school can donate the most canned goods between now and the Dec. 4 menís basketball game to benefit the Food Bank for the Heartland. The game begins at 4:05 p.m. at CenturyLink Center Omaha; the winner will be announced during half time.

Separate donation barrels for Creighton and Nebraska will be located at the south and west entrance of CenturyLink as well as The Old Mattress Factory Bar and Grill, 501 N 13th St. Donations will be collected until the start time of the game.

A blue donation barrel is also located at Creighton University on the fourth floor of Criss 2; and another food barrel is located in the Michael Sorrel Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center on the second floor, next to the 42nd street skywalk.

The Great Creighton Nebraska Food Fight is sponsored by the Creighton and Nebraska chapters of Phi Rho Sigma Medical Society, a society for medical students. Alumni associations of both groups have also donated $500 each to the food bank.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
