At the end of each University of Alabama home game, volunteers swing into action for the “Fifth Quarter.“
During the closing minutes of all University of Alabama home games, volunteers from the University of Alabama’s fraternities, along with trained food bank personnel, salvage food prepared for fans in the North Zone, South Zone and sky boxes. Vendors, who prepare food for these areas, donate all items which were not offered for service during the game. The food is immediately repackaged in vacuumed sealed containers and delivered to the food bank. The food is then offered to the food bank’s agencies for delivery to those in need. 5th Quarter also collects food from basketball and gymnastics events.
