Before UNC's largest food drive begins, those in charge of running of Cans to Candelaria will host a hot dog cookout from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today in the McKee Breezeway to help bolster the funds sent to the Weld Food Bank.

Hot dogs cost $1 each. All proceeds of the event will be send to the food bank.

In addtion to serving hot dogs, the event will also provide live music.

According to the Cans to Candelaria website, in 2009, the total amount of food collected from the drive was almost 60,000 pounds.

Those interested in contributing can donate either individually, or with a campus club or organization. The food drive is also a competition among the participating teams.

One pound of food is equal to one point toward scoring. The food drive is part of this year's Homecoming competition point system. Cans to Candelaria is a canned food drive, and this will be the fifth year of the event.
