While the Golden State Warriors fell short of their goal of an NBA Finals three-peat, fans of “Dub Nation” stepped up in a big way, raising thousands of dollars for their neighbors in what has become an annual tradition: the Food Bank Finals Challenge.
The Alameda County Community Food Bank and the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank asked Warriors fans to show they are more generous than Toronto Raptors fans when it comes to supporting their local community. When the series ended with Toronto capturing its first-ever NBA title, the true winner was the community at large. ACCFB and SFMFB collected a combined $20,000 to help feed neighbors in need on both sides of the Bay – enough for 45,000 meals.
