Seattle Seahawks Attain Top Spot in NFL's Kick Hunger Challenge

The NFL's Kick Hunger Challenge culminates this weekend ahead of Super Bowl 50 and the Seahawks have raised more than $75,000 in support of local food banks, more than any other team.

Seattle has reclaimed the top spot in the Kick Hunger Challenge, the 25th annual competition between all 32 NFL clubs that rallies the country's top chefs and League's top players together to raise funds in support of food banks across the United States. 

The Seahawks, who have won the challenge three years in a row, have raised more than $75,000 to date, a number that at the time of this writing is more than $50,000 more than the second-place team. 

"We're going to win for the fourth year in a row," former Seahawks defensive tackle Craig Terrill said at a recent Kick Hunger dinner and auction hosted by local chef and restaurateur John Howie. "The cool thing is all the money's going to go right here to Food Lifeline and stay in Western Washington and support the people in Seattle."

It's not too late for fans to get involved. Every $1 raised provides up to eight meals for the hungry and you can click here to donate right now. Seahawks faithful can also help out by purchasing one of these Kick Hunger Challenge shirts.

Contributions made before noon on Friday, Feb. 5 will count toward the team's final goal, with the Seahawks hoping to secure $100,000 in donations, a target that's $90,000 higher than every other NFL team. 

The competition culminates this Saturday - the night before Super Bowl 50 - in the Bay Area with the "Taste of the NFL Party With A Purpose" to be held at the legendary Cow Palace, where *Third Eye Blind* is scheduled to perform. Tickets are pricey, but still available, with proceeds benefiting food banks in every NFL city.
