huddle for hunger

The Buffalo Bills Foundation, Independent Health Foundation and News 4 Buffalo WIVB-TV are teaming up with FeedMore WNY to present Huddle for Hunger! The food and funds donated through Huddle for Hunger will help FeedMore WNY tackle the growing problem of childhood hunger in WNY.

join us at Bills Stadium

On September 18 and 19, join us for a food drive at Bills Stadium. Meet Buffalo Bills legends (including Jim Kelly on Friday) and mascot Billy Buffalo while enjoying music and entertainment from DJ Milk and The Stampede! The first 5,000 fans to donate will receive a Huddle for Hunger face mask (limit 2 per car). The Buffalo Bills have set a goal to collect 20 tons of food (40,000 pounds) during this year’s event, and we need your help to reach that goal!

For the safety of our 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.
