Bengals team up with Freestore for food drive Sunday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - For the 25th straight year, the Cincinnati Bengals are teaming up with the Freestore Foodbank to tackle hunger during the game against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, November 8th, with the team's Annual Meijer Canned Food Drive.

Freestore Foodbank volunteers will collect non-perishable foods and monetary donations at each of the entrance gates to Paul Brown Stadium. Gates open at 11:30 a.m.

In 2008, fans donated 7,630 pounds of food and $8,020.  The Bengals are challenging fans to break that record this year.
