The University of South Carolina is fighting hunger one can at a time.  Students met at the Russell House for Harvest Hope's "Beat Hunger" campaign on Wednesday.

Harvest Hope's Cool Can Sam was there to help students kick off the campaign.

Event director Cyndthia Wagner and Cocky were also there encouraging people to donate.

"This is the beat hunger pep rally.  It's Carolina coming together with Harvest Hope to beat hunger in the Midlands," Wagner said.

South Carolina's ranked in the top five states for hunger. 

USC cheerleader Stephanie Zeady said this event is beneficial to the entire Carolina community.

"We're out here playing games and winning tickets and prizes all while raising hunger awareness," Zeady said.

USC has been collecting cans all week to "Stuff the Bus" with food they will deliver to Harvest Hope.

General Mills representative Annie Novak was also there showing her support.

"Today we are trying to raise money to beat hunger by playing a duck pond game."  

The University will continue to collect nonperishable items throughout October for Harvest Hope.
