The 17th Annual Jaguars Family Food Drive will once again help feed needy families on the First Coast. Winn-Dixie and the Jaguars team up annually by hosting the drive in Winn-Dixie stores. This year's gameday collection will take place on Sunday, Oct. 2, when the Jaguars face the New Orleans Saints.
Each fall, the Jacksonville Jaguars partner with Winn-Dixie stores to host a food drive benefiting Second Harvest North Florida. Jacksonville-area residents can donate food in specially marked barrels at participating Winn-Dixie stores on the First Coast from Sept. 27 through Nov. 8. Additionally, the Jaguars will hold a food drive before their Oct. 2 game against the New Orleans Saints at EverBank Field. Collection barrels will be set up outside the stadium for fans to donate nonperishable food items.
