The Jaguars seventh Annual Holiday Food Drive concluded with record numbers following the team's game-day stadium collection last Sunday when the Jaguars hosted the Cincinnati Bengals. Including donations from area Publix Super Markets that were a part of the drive, cash donations ($3,300) and cans of Chunky Soup donated by Campbell's Soup Company, more than 35 tons of non-perishable food items - enough for approximately 47,000 meals - was collected.
All donations will be centrally distributed by the LSS Second Harvest Food Bank to more than 350 non-profit agencies in northeast Florida.
