On two consecutive Mondays, members of the Minnesota football team packed more than 27,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger in New Hope, Minn.

The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid organization, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the United State and to feed starving children throughout the world.

Members of the Gopher defense packed 11,232 meals on Monday, July 16, while the Minnesota offense put together more than 16,000 meals on July 23. After breaking it down to meal-packed-per-player, the offense still packed more meals than the defense.
