On Sunday, when the Jaguars play the Bengals, fans should remember to bring non-perishable food items to help fight hunger on the First Coast.
Fans who bring five or more items to the game day collection will receive a special edition 11x17 size commemorative poster. The seventh annual Jaguars Food Drive has been underway since October 29 with area Publix stores accepting non-perishable food items. Last year's drive brought in more than 28,000 pounds of food, enough for approximately 18,707 meals.
Members of JagNet, the team's volunteer wives group, will be at each of the stadium's four main gates and both Touchdown Clubs accepting food donations starting at 11:30 a.m. The Jaguars' cheerleaders, The Roar, will also accept donations at the stadium's Touchdown Club West entrance.
For more information, contact the Jaguars Community Affairs Department at (904) 633-6136.
