Amtgard Food Fight

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in News

With the start of September comes the Amtgard Food fight. The Amtgard Food Fight is a game-wide call for action to generate awareness through education, to motivate volunteerism, and to encourage and solicit donations for food charities local to Amtgard chapters. Food Fight encourages support towards a common goal and demonstrates the greater impact we can have when we all work together towards that common goal. To date, Amtgard has raised over $100,000 and countless volunteer hours towards its mission of education, donation and volunteerism. The result is a little over a million dollars worth of buying power and support for food charities across the country. 2014 will be the 6th year that Amtgard gets together to raise money and cans for local food banks, and the donations have more than doubled each year.
