DETROIT – Sunday, as the Detroit Lions took on the Miami Dolphins, fans had a chance to give back to the community.

The Detroit Lions Foundation teamed up with Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan to make a positive impact.

They set up collection sites around the stadium to accept canned goods donations.

Everyone who donates will be entered for a chance to win two tickets to an upcoming Lions home game.

“We’ve seen an increase in clients, and an increased need across the board at those pantries and Community Mobile Distributions” said Katherine Body of Gleaners Community Food Bank.  

The food bank also has a partner network of 600 pantries thus far and, since inflation has skyrocketed, these generous donations will come in handy, especially during the holiday season.
