Members of the Adelphi chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity collected 1,200 pounds of food and $1,500 to combat hunger as part of its Super Hungerfest 2015.

For the 10th consecutive year, the Adelphi University chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity will hold its Super Hungerfest, a 24-hour fast held during Super Bowl weekend to raise awareness of hunger and collect non-perishable food for Island Harvest food bank. This year’s drive starts with a kickoff celebration on Saturday, February 6, 2016, from 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m., at the Angello Alumni House. The event continues through Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2016, as 42 brothers travel to communities on Long Island to collect donations.

“It is important to realize that hunger exists in our backyard and anything we can do to help makes a difference,” said Christian Albano, president of Kappa Sigma at Adelphi.

Last year, the fraternity raised more than 1,200 pound of food and more than $1,500 to support Island Harvest, and it hopes to top those numbers this year.
