CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati 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 Sunday as the Bengals take on the Cleveland Browns.
Non-perishable foods and cash donations will be accepted at each entrance to Paul Brown Stadium by Freestore Foodbank volunteers as gates open at 11:30 a.m. 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 2012 brought in 7,893 pounds of food and $16,600 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 40,000 meals during the three days prior to Thanksgiving and again three days prior to Christmas.
Bengals fans are reminded that every contribution makes a difference for the Tri-State families in need.
