Winnipeg Harvest joined forces with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday to launch the CFL “Pepsi Refresh Challenge.”

The contest will help the food bank’s Hunger for Hope initiative to put food on the table of many deserving Winnipeg families.

Each CFL team has one representative who will compete against each other for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi.

Lineman Luke Fritz is the chosen one for the Blue Bombers and will be counting on public support to win the grant.

Fans can vote at beginning today for Fritz in his bid to win the big prize to help feed the 19,000 children that rely on Winnipeg Harvest each month.
