With even the basic nutritional knowledge, the thought of an eating contest might make you feel a little queasy. The idea of eating as many hotdogs as you can in a matter of minutes could almost give you a heart attack just thinking about it. Yet, right here on UNH campus there is one eating contest that actually takes a different approach. Annually, the Pan-Hellenic Sorority, Alpha Phi, holds their philanthropy event called “Eat Your Heart Out.” The event is designed with healthy foods in mind. The competition is a healthy eating contest between Greeks or any member in the UNH community. Things can get a little messy but it’s for a great cause, and puts on quite the show. Dishes include everything from bananas to carrots and even the dreaded rice cakes. Contestants go through a series of rounds for the chance to win great prizes for…stuffing their face with healthy foods.

Even thought the idea of eating as much food as you can in a minute…isn’t exactly good for you, it does make the fun idea a little better when what your eating is good for you! The event is focused on promoting heart healthy foods and all profits go towards the organizations philanthropy, cardiac care. The action takes place this year on March 22nd at 7:00pm in the Granite State Room. The cost of the event is $5 and tickets can be purchased in the MUB ticket office in advance or on the 22nd
