Bengals, Freestore Foodbank seek donations at gates

Posted Nov 19, 2012

The Bengals and the Freestore Foodbank are teaming up again for the Annual Meijer Canned Food Drive. Canned foods and monetary donations will be collected at Paul Brown Stadium this Sunday prior to the 1 p.m. game against the Raiders.

Gates open at 11:30 a.m. Non-perishable foods and cash donations can be handed in at each entrance manned by Freestore Foodbank volunteers. Food products will be collected in Mobile Storage Depot Pods.

The Bengals have hosted the Freestore Foodbank Canned Food Drive for more than 25 years. The Food Drive in 2011 brought in 8,120 pounds of food and $14,021 in cash. The Bengals are challenging fans to break that record this year.

The need is greater than ever. The Freestore Foodbank plans to distribute more than 790,000 pounds of food during the three days prior to Thanksgiving and again three days prior to Christmas. The food provides holiday meals for more than 23,000 families in our community.

Bengals fans are reminded that every contribution makes a difference for the Tri-State families in need. Please show your support this holiday season and bring canned food or a donation to the game.
