Titans to collect food for Second Harvest Sunday

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Titans are again teaming up with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee this year for their annual non-perishable food drive as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals this weekend at LP Field.

The collection will take place from 1 p.m. until kickoff, which is set for 3:05 p.m. Sunday.

Second Harvest Food Bank will have volunteers stationed at the seven charity drop sites around the stadium to collect donations.

"If every fan attending the game donates at least one pound of non-perishable food, then Titans fans will raise 68,000 pounds of food that will result in thousands of meals for hungry families in Middle Tennessee," Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank, said.

Canned tuna and chicken, peanut butter, canned vegetables, cereal, canned fruit, pasta and canned soups and stews are among the most needed items.

Second Harvest's Feeding Hope Challenge runs November 1 through December 31 with a goal to raise nine million meals for those in need.
