CANCELED - Ninth Annual Alumni Charity Challenge

5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Sept. 16, 2021

Because of inclement weather, this event has been canceled. You can still donate toward VCU’s food donation collection.

This year marks the ninth annual Alumni Charity Challenge, and the VCU Alumni Richmond Chapter is competing again with alumni from colleges and universities across the country to see which school can donate the most canned goods to Feed More, the Central Virginia Food Bank.

The Alumni Charity Challenge was established in 2013 by the VCU Alumni Richmond Chapter and has collected more than 236 tons of canned goods with the support of more than 50 colleges from in-state and out-of-state since it began. Feed More collects, prepares and distributes food to neighbors in need across 29 counties and five cities in Central Virginia. You can support our quest to remain in first place by donating canned goods or attending and representing VCU Alumni.

Some of the most needed items are peanut butter, canned tuna and chicken, canned low-sodium vegetables and canned spaghetti sauce. The goal of the challenge is to collect 150,000 pounds of food to benefit the community. Wear your black and gold or VCU gear and bring canned goods to receive a limited-edition souvenir (while supplies last).

Can’t make the event? Donate toward VCU’s food donation collection.
