One in six neighbors in the Tri-State area is at risk of hunger. That’s more than 290,000 people, over 94,000 of which who are children.
“The Taste of the NFL is a great opportunity for our fans to come out and support the efforts of the Freestore Foodbank,” said Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis. “It’s a chance for the fans to see the players. They don’t have on helmets or jerseys – it’s a chance to see them as people. It’s a great event and all of the money raised goes to a great cause.”
Taste of the NFL is one of the Freestore Foodbank’s signature fundraising events. Tickets are on sale for $175 and can be purchased online or by calling (513) 482-FOOD(3663).
“The cost of one admission will help the Freestore Foodbank provide 525 meals to hungry children and families in our Tri-State area,” said Kurt Reiber, President and CEO of the Freestore Foodbank. “This is a great opportunity for Bengals fans to mix and mingle with players and coaches, all while giving back to our community.”
Since its inception in 2003, the popular Taste of the NFL fundraiser has raised the equivalent of more than three million meals for the Freestore Foodbank’s efforts.
