NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ The winner of an annual ``food fight'' between Gov. Bill Haslam and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is scheduled to be announced Tuesday.

The competition, which ran from Nov. 6 through Friday, pitches the two officials' staffs against each other for who can donate the most food to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Nashville.

The mayor's office last year collected more than 13,000 pounds of food to win the competition, after Haslam's office won it in 2011.

Metro Nashville government workers last year collected more than 127,000 pounds of food, which is enough to feed 99,000 families.

The governor and the mayor are scheduled to attend Tuesday's announcement.
