Nevada Wolf Pack serves food to needy

They’re scheduled to take the field on Sunday, but before that, 90 Nevada football players will make a cameo appearance in more unfamiliar confines — the kitchen.

The team, in town to participate in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl at AT&T Park, will help serve up meals to the needy on Saturday at Glide, one of San Francisco’s most venerable homeless outreach organizations. The players are scheduled to volunteer in Glide’s free lunch service from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.

“GLIDE is thrilled to be a part of the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and its commitment to tackle hunger here in the Bay Area and beyond,” Reverend Cecil Williams, Glide’s Minister of Liberation, said in a statement. “We appreciate the help of Kraft and the athletes in serving those who are most in need.”

On 6 p.m. on Sunday, the 15th ranked Wolf Pack will square off against Boston College in the postseason contest, formerly known as the Emerald Bowl.
