The Quad City Mallards have partnered with R.I.A. Federal Credit Union for the River Bend Foodbank Challenge.
This marks the third year in row R.I.A. has launched the challenge in order to help bring an end to hunger in the Quad Cities. Over the past two years R.I.A. has generated over 10,000 pounds of food donations.
Mallards fans are asked to lend a hand during the month-long challenge by bringing a non-perishable food item to any of the team’s February home games:
Wednesday, February 3
Friday, February 5
Friday, February 19
Saturday, February 20
Friday, February 26
Saturday, February 27
Donations can be made at the R.I.A. table located on the main concourse behind sections 108 and 109. For each item donated R.I.A. will enter the donor’s name in a drawing for an iPad mini.
Tickets for each of the Mallards’ February home games are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.

R.I.A. Federal Credit Union was first established in 1935 on the Rock Island Arsenal to serve our military members and federal employees working on the island. For over 20 years R.I.A. Federal Credit Union has been open to serve all of the Quad Cities and surrounding areas, including Wilton, Iowa, and Savanna, Illinois, while maintaining a strong presence on the Rock Island Arsenal.
