The Buffalo Bills Foundation has announced the team will hold a "Huddle for Hunger" at Bills Stadium in partnership with FeedMore WNY, the Independent Health Foundation and News 4 Buffalo WIVB-TV.
Fans can visit the stadium from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 18 and from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19 to donate food items that will benefit FeedMore WNY's childhood feeding programs. The Bills have set a goal to collect 20 tons of food (40,000 pounds) at this year's event.
Scroll through to see the best photos from this weekend's "Huddle for Hunger" food drive to collect donated food items that will benefit FeedMore WNY's childhood feeding programs. Fans were welcomed by Bills Alumni, including Jim Kelly, as well as Billy Buffalo, DJ Milk, and the Stampede drum line.
The first 5,000 fans to donate will receive a commemorative Huddle for Hunger face mask (limit two per car). Bills Legends will be on hand along with Billy Buffalo and entertainment from DJ Milk and The Stampede drum line.
Friday's event will be "Friday Night Lights" themed, with local high schools encouraged to show their school spirit, decorate their cars, and wear their school colors as they make a positive impact as News 4 Buffalo broadcasts live from the stadium and Jim Kelly makes an appearance.
For the safety of the community, this will be a "contactless" food drive. Fans are asked to enter the stadium parking lot through the Abbott Road entrance. Simply pull up in your vehicle and on-site volunteers will collect your donation. Staff and volunteers will be following recommended safety protocols.
