WKBD'S THIRD ANNUAL 'TACKLE HUNGER' FOOD DRIVE KICKS OFF AT SILVERDOME SUNDAY, OCT. 17

 DETROIT, OCT. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- WKBD-TV's annual "Tackle Hunger" food drive, co-sponsored by the Detroit Lions, MichCon, Huntington Banks, Health Alliance Plan, the U.S. Postal Service and the Oakland Press, will kick off at the Pontiac Silverdome on Sunday, Oct. 17.
 Fans attending the Lions/Seattle Seahawks game are asked to bring canned food to the stadium gates, where it will be collected by wives of Detroit Lions players. All food donated at the football game will be given to Lighthouse, an emergency services resource center, to feed hungry people during the holiday season.
 The "Tackle Hunger" food drive will then continue through Nov. 5. During that time, citizens are asked to drop off canned goods at any MichCon or Huntington Bank location, or any metropolitan Detroit post office. In addition, letter carriers in metropolitan Detroit will pick up food donations during regular mail delivery on Saturday, Oct. 30.
 Cash donations are also welcome. Checks in any amount should be made payable to "Tackle Hunger" and sent to: Tackle Hunger, c/o Huntington Banks, P.O. Box 5823, Troy, MI 48007-5823, Attn.: Marketing Department.
 All contributions of food and money will be distributed between four major food banks: Gleaners in Wayne County, The Oakland County Food Bank, the Macomb Food Program, and Lighthouse.
 "Tackle Hunger" is part of WKBD's "Sharing Together ... To Make A Difference" community outreach program sponsored by MichCon, Huntington Banks, the U.S. Postal Service and Health Alliance Plan. Over the past two years, more than 34 tons of food and $5,000 in cash donations have been collected during the annual three-week food drive.
