CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- Chattanooga football is the hottest ticket in town these days, and the Mocs helped fans get tickets while the fans helped fill the shelves of the Chattanooga Area Food Bank with enough food to feed 85 families for one week.

"The drive could not have happened at a better time," Food Bank Development Director Gary Paul said. "This is our busiest time of year and we have been giving out food in record numbers."

In the week prior to the Mocs football game against Elon on Oct. 30, the Food Bank gave out 450 boxes and that won't slow down any time before Christmas. At the game, UTC fans donated 4,682 pounds of food. That number is up from the 1,000 pounds collected the previous year at a UTC football game.

"The Food Bank staff wishes to thank Moc fans for their donations and the UTC Athletic Department for offering tickets for food," Paul said. "The scoreboard may not have shown it, but there were a lot of winners wearing Blue and Gold on Saturday."

Fans can continue to donate to the Food Bank by dropping off items at their location at 2009 Curtain Pole Road just off Amnicola Highway. Fans attending the Mocs January 29 game against Elon will have the opportunity to gain admission to the game with more donations to the Food Bank.
