Food drive at Air Force/Army football game

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun is encouraging spectators to bring non-parishable food items to Saturday’s 10 a.m. football game against Army at Falcon Stadium.

Calhoun and his wife, Amanda, put on the food drive, which has been a charity of choice since Amanda became involved in a similar effort while Calhoun was an assistant coach with the Denver Broncos.

Locations will be set up throughout the stadium to collect food.

“It’s something we want to try to help,” Calhoun said. “Do I think we can change it completely? I think we can make headway and progress that way.

“Any small bit, you need to know, helps make a difference. If it helps somebody – one person – in their life and helps them eat a little better, you just never know. All of the sudden their health is a little better, they’re a little more alert and they’re able to gain employment or keep employment, you just never know. It helps people.”
