Teaming up to “Tackle Hunger”


CENTRAL ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Once again WCIA and the Eastern Illinois Foodbank will Tackle Hunger.

During the 9-week high school football season WCIA features the “Tackle Hunger” game of the week between two rival schools.

Students at the participating schools host a food and/or fund drive to benefit Eastern Illinois Foodbank and a local food pantry.

Eastern Illinois Foodbank

Its week one of high school football, and our first #TackleHunger football game…the GCMS Falcons held a fundraiser supporting the Eastern Illinois Foodbank, with the chance to pie a faculty member in the face. Only fitting it was head football coach Mike Allen. More tonight at 5 from WCIA 3’s Marlee Wierda
