Bengals and Freestore Foodbank Host Canned Food Drive this Sunday

The Bengals and the Freestore Foodbank are teaming up for the 32nd 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 Cleveland Browns. 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.

"We hear each year from fans that they left their canned goods on the kitchen counter in a rush to get to the game," said Freestore Foodbank President and CEO Kurt Reiber. "We want Bengals Nation to know that a $5 donation is just as powerful and will help us provide 15 meals to hungry families."

Last year, Bengals fans food and monetary donations provided more than 64,000 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 one of Ohio's largest food banks, distributing 24 million meals annually through a network of 400 community partner agencies serving 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. This includes food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, community centers, program sites, senior centers and daycare facilities.
