The Bengals and Freestore Foodbank are teaming up for the 33rd Annual Canned Food Drive. Canned foods and cash donations will be collected at Paul Brown Stadium this Sunday prior to the Bengals 1 p.m. home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gates open at 11:30 a.m.

Non-perishable foods and cash donations will be accepted at each entrance to Paul Brown Stadium by Freestore Foodbank volunteers. Food products will be collected in U-Haul U-Box Containers. 

Last year, food and monetary donations from Bengals fans provided more than 64,500 meals to hungry children and families in our community. Fans are reminded that every contribution makes a difference for Tri-State families in need. 

The Freestore Foodbank is the largest emergency food and services provider to children and families in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. The organization distributes 33 million meals annually to low-income individuals and families. The Freestore Foodbank supports 511 community partners in 20 counties throughout Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, including food kitchens, homeless shelters, emergency food pantries, social service centers and program sites.
