Tiger Chopped ChallengeBATON ROUGE – LSU Dining, in partnership with LSU Auxiliary Services and LSU Food Pantry, operated by LSU Campus Life, will be hosting Tiger Chopped Challenge on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the Magnolia Room of the LSU Student Union. This event is part of the National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

The Tiger Chopped Challenge is a competition event that will feature food panty items as the base ingredients. LSU students will be teamed with LSU Dining chefs and given a food basket with staple items from the LSU Food Pantry. The teams will create their own unique dishes from the items provided. Entries will be judges on creativity, presentation, product utilization and flavor.  LSU alumnus, Baton Rouge native and celebrity chef Jay Ducote will emcee the event. This free event is open to the public. Donations to the LSU Food Pantry will be accepted at the door.

Located on the third floor of the LSU Student Union, The LSU Food Panty provides supplemental food to students in need who may experience hunger or food insecurity. Students are asked to present a current LSU Tiger Card upon visiting the LSU Food Pantry. The LSU Food Pantry is open Monday – Thursday from 1 – 6 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sunday from 4 – 6 p.m.

For those unable to attend the event who would like to donate to the LSU Food Pantry, donations can be accepted at the location, as well as through the LSU Food Pantry Amazon Wish List.
