Steelers’ fans can do their part to help those less fortunate by donating to the Annual Steelers Food Drive at Heinz Field this Sunday when the Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens.
Fans are encouraged to bring nutritious non-perishable food and grocery items to donate for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Fans can also make cash donations.
Volunteers will be stationed at all gates, as well as Stage AE, and at the Food Bank truck on General Robinson Street from 1 p.m. until shortly after kickoff. Giant Eagle will match the donations pound for pound.
Some of the items fans are encouraged to bring coincided with the NFL’s Play 60 campaign, which encourages healthy eating. The most needed items are: raisin snack packs, dried fruits, fruit cups, 100 percent juice boxes, non-chocolate granola bars, low-sugar cereal, canned tuna (water-packed), sunflower seeds, peanuts and mixed nuts, and trail mix. Seasonal items are also welcome: canned pumpkin or yams, boxed mashed potatoes or stuffing mix, etc., along with paper products, personal care items, diapers (baby and adult). Bring nonperishable items only and no glass containers.
Fans that aren’t able to attend the game can donate to the Steelers Virtual Food Drive at www.pittsburghfoodbank.org/steelers.
