Food drive ends with pies in faces at Alabama Power Friday

Posted: Updated:
There were lots of pies in faces at Alabama Power’s headquarters Friday, and it was all for a good cause.

The company’s “Let’s Can Hunger” event culminated with a celebration today, featuring former Auburn and Alabama football stars.

The event was a food drive, in which APCO employees brought in more than 1,500 pounds of food to be delivered to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.

The food drive pitted employees who are Auburn fans versus those employees who are Alabama fans.

Wesley Britt, former offensive lineman for Alabama, and Quentin Riggins, former Auburn linebacker, were on hard representing their fan bases for the company.

The rule was the losing team’s player got a pie in the face, but both players actually smashed each other with pies, after a donation was made to even up both teams amounts.
