Proceeds will go to the supplemental nutrition program for football players. During spring and summer practice athletes need to consume daily more calories than mess hall meals supply. The CFA provides additional nutritious snacks and beverages in the weight room to assure that players are receiving the necessary calories for optimal athletic performance. This program is in addition to the nine weekly mess hall meals per player per week during the summer that the CFA funds.
