WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The 12 California Collegiate Athletic Association Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) programs continued to show improvement in the fourth annual canned food drive in 2013-14.

The project was designed to raise awareness to the prevalence of hunger in communities surrounding the 12 CCAA institutions, which includes collecting cans and providing the donations to local food banks.

The project resulted in the CCAA collecting a total of 6,315 cans, an increase of 1,387 cans from 2013.  As a conference, the SAAC averaged 526.25 cans per institution, an increase of 115.59 cans per school.

Cal State L.A. reached the highest total of donations for the fourth consecutive year with a total of 1,772 cans, an increase of 422. Sonoma State, which improved from its 2013 total of 204 cans to a conference second-best total of 1,374 cans, recorded the largest increase among all 12 institutions.

UC San Diego collected the third-highest amount of donations with 616 cans. The donations benefited the San Diego Food Bank.

Eight of the 12 CCAA schools improved from last years total by at least seven cans, with Cal State Dominguez Hills and San Francisco State joining the Golden Eagles with a triple-digit improvement.
