The Freestore Foodbank and the Cincinnati Bengals are teaming up again for the Annual Meijer Canned Food Drive. Canned foods and monetary donations will be collected at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, November 27, prior to the Bengals 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 Mobile Storage Depot Pods.
The Bengals have hosted the Freestore Foodbank Canned Food Drive for over 25 years. The Food Drive in 2010 brought in 7,107 pounds of food and $11,500 in cash. The Bengals are challenging fans to break that record this year.
The need is greater than ever. The Freestore Foodbank will distribute more than 790,000 pounds of food during the three days prior to Thanksgiving and again three days prior to Christmas. The food will provide holidays 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 the Bengals-Browns on Sunday, November 27.
