Help Pack the Pantries this Holiday Season
Fans can help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Mosaic Company pack the pantries this holiday season by donating nonperishable food items Sunday at Raymond James Stadium before the Buccaneers take on the Buffalo Bills. Kickoff for the highly anticipated Week 14 matchup is at 4:25 p.m.ET.
In support of the Tackling Hunger Fueled by Mosaic program, food donations will benefit Feeding Tampa Bay, part of the national Feeding America network, which focuses on providing food to nearly one million food insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida. Beginning at 1:00 p.m., volunteers will accept donations at the large treasure chests approaching each stadium entrance. Fans are encouraged to donate a variety of food items, including:
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Canned meat
- Boxed meals
- Breakfast items (cereal, oatmeal)
- Baking and cooking items
- Rice and beans
- Pasta and sauce
- Hygiene products
- Cleaning supplies
*Note; Raymond James Stadium maintains a no bag policy for all events. Bags will not be allowed inside the stadium gates.
Fans not attending Sunday’s game can still support the cause. Online donations may be made through Feeding Tampa Bay’s 12 Days of Giving program, which will help feed local children and families. A $1 donation to Feeding Tampa Bay provides 10 meals for families in need. One in four children in Tampa Bay are food insecure – a number that is even higher in certain areas throughout the region.
