Members of the Hamilton College men's lacrosse team are feeding the hungry and helping Utica residents that are in need.

Corbin Brown '11 (Lincoln, Mass./Milton Academy) formed Hamilton Against Hunger last winter after he wondered what happened to the food that wasn't eaten at the campus dining halls. Brown and his organization worked with the Food Bank of Greater Utica at first, but now makes donations to the Utica Rescue Mission.

Some days, as much as a quarter of the food prepared at Hamilton's dining halls is not used. The food that isn't consumed is picked up twice a week by the rescue mission, who meets members of a Hamilton team at two dining halls. Approximately 200 pounds of food is salvaged every week. Brown is one of four Hamilton Against Hunger site coordinators. The others are teammate Stephen Lefebvre '11, Dan Bartus '12 and James Keefe '13.

The men's lacrosse team will be serving meals at the rescue mission on Saturday, Feb. 6, and Saturday, Feb. 13. All Hamilton athletic programs are welcome to participate in Hamilton Against Hunger.
