Tennessee Titans Food Drive


Sunday, October 20

We’re teaming up with the Titans to tackle hunger! When you arrive to cheer on the home team against the Chargers, bring shelf-stable food and donations to charity drop-off points inside Nissan Stadium.

In the spirit of friendly competition, we’re pushing to beat last year’s total: 32,000 meals. Thank you to Kroger Zero Hunger Zero Waste for sponsoring this food drive. Go Titans!

Most needed items include peanut butter, canned chicken and tuna, canned fruit and vegetables, beans, soups and stews, pasta, and rice.
