Beat Auburn Beat Hunger (BABH) is an annual student run event that was created by the Center for Service and Leadership (CSL) and the West Alabama Food Bank in 1994. During the seven weeks leading up to the Iron Bowl, the BABH food drive unites University of Alabama students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Tuscaloosa and Northport community members to help “fight” hunger and poverty in West Alabama.
In competition with Auburn University and the Food Bank of East Alabama, BABH challenges both institutions to collect the most non-perishable food to help those who suffer from food insecurity. This good-natured competition has made an impact that reaches far beyond the campuses where it began. Since its inception, Alabama and Auburn have combined to raise approximately 5.1 million pounds of food for Alabamians.
