NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has won his ``food fight'' with Gov. Bill Haslam for the second year in a row.

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

The mayor's office gathered 385 pounds of food per person, while Haslam staffers donated 345 pounds each.

Metro Nashville government workers collected a total of 122,000 pounds of food, which is enough to provide nearly 102,000 meals.

According to Second Harvest, more than 1 million Tennesseans find themselves in dire need of food.
