Titans fans have proved to be incredibly generous when it comes to donating items to the charitable drives that the Titans host at LP Field. Last year Titans fans raised approximately 20,000 lbs of food during the food drive. At Sunday's game against the Bills, Titans demonstrated their generosity by donating 24,000 lbs of food.

Second Harvest Food Bank feeds over one million people each year and the Titans food drive will help tremendously, especially in these difficult economic times. That number keeps increasing as more and more people are relying on donations from food banks to feed their families. According to Tasha Kenard, communications and marketing director for Second Harvest, 24,000 lbs of food can be turned into roughly 20,000 meals for hungry men, women and children in middle Tennessee.

"We have done a food drive with the Titans ever since they came to Nashville. Every year the amount of food we collect grows and grows. We appreciate the support of the Titans and look forward to this drive each year," said Kenard.

Titans fan Daniel Jones wanted he and son Thomas to be part of the food drive and help Second Harvest. Jones brought Thomas to his first Titans game on Sunday and brought along a bag of food to donate as well.
