Admission to this game will be $10 or 5 canned food items.

Food and monetary donations benefit the Hawks’ Nest

The HFC community can support the Hunger Games by donating canned goods and non-perishable food items at the game on February 21. Donations may also be dropped off in the lobby of the Athletic Memorial Building by February 21.

You can also contact HFC Associate Athletic Director Kirk Bradley at 313-317-6878 to arrange for a pick-up. If you wish to make a monetary donation, contact HFC Athletic Director Rochelle Taylor to make arrangements.

All food items and funds will support The Hawks’ Nest, HFC’s student food pantry.

Fostering a competitive spirit since 2014

The MCCAA Hunger Games have been fostering a competitive spirit by giving back to our local communities since 2014. All 23 member institutions select a home basketball game where they encourage people to donate canned goods and non-perishable food items.

The donations are delivered to local community or college food pantries. At the end of the conference season, the MCCAA crowns the winner of the contest with the Hunger Games plaque. In 2023, the MCCAA Hunger Games provided 15,335 meals to food pantries throughout the state. Thanks to the generosity of our community, HFC provided almost 5,000 meals and was ranked second in total meals provided in 2023.

“We look forward to hosting the Hunger Games on February 21 as part of the MCCAA's push to collect food for those in need,” said HFC men’s basketball coach Chris Shepard. “We know we will have a good turnout, and we are excited to do our part.”
