Before taking to the gridiron in the 74th annual TaxSlayer Gator Bowl on Dec. 31, the North Carolina State Wolfpack and Texas A&M University Aggies teamed up with Blessings in a Backpack to feed kids in Florida’s First Coast.

Together, the teams packed 1,000 bags of food for kids at risk of going hungry on the weekends. In addition to food, the bags include hand-written inspiration notes from the players and coaches.

Thank you, TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, NC State, and Texas A&M for helping us feed hungry kids on the weekends!
