Cowboy fans looking for fourth straight win in Bedlam Canned Food Drive

Bedlam Canned Food DriveBedlam bragging rights and team spirit are on the line for the fifth annual Bedlam Canned Food Drive. OSU and OU fans will compete to see who can raise the most canned food donations now through Monday, Nov. 30 to benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.

OSU fans can score points for the Cowboys by donating non-perishable food items. Drop boxes are located in the North Hall Lobby, Main Hall Commons and the first floor of Administration Hall. Monetary donations are also accepted online at the Food Bank’s website at www.cfbeo.org. A $1 donation equals two pounds of food.

OU won the first competition in 2006, but OSU rallied for victories the past three years. During last year’s Bedlam food drive, OSU beat OU by 1,287 pounds. A total of 6,187 pounds of food was donated to the 450 Partner Programs served by the Food Bank.

The annual Bedlam food drive is sponsored by the Tulsa Chapter of the OSU Alumni Association and the OU Club of Tulsa.
