Food Fight with the St. Paul Saints

St. Paul Saints honor “Animal House” with massive food fight.

The St. Paul Saints paid homage to the movie “Animal House” and the recent 40th anniversary of the movie’s release, and their re-creation of the epic food fight scene was the headliner of the night.

Over 8,000 fans threw mashed potatoes, marshmallows, popcorn, and powdered donuts around the stadium after the final out of the 5th inning while wearing blue ponchos.  While it seems like a waste of food, the Saints were able to put a positive spin on the promotion.  Per the St. Paul Saints website:

The Saints are asked fans to bring in non-perishable food items which will be donated to SafeZone, a daytime center started by Face To Face, a Saint Paul organization that serves more than 3,000 homeless and underserved youth and young adults usually ages 11-24.  In addition, for every dollar the Saints spent on the food being used in the food fight, they will donate that amount to Second Harvest Heartland, an organization working to end hunger through community partnership.
