ITHACA, NY – Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick will reprise his role as culinary judge and supporter of local food security programs for the Third Annual Myrick Hunger Hero Competition sponsored by Collegetown Bagels (CTB) and Ithaca Bakery.

The winning sandwich will be added to the menus at CTB and Ithaca Bakery. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to United Way of Tompkins County (UWTC), and all funds will be invested in local food programs.
