Fill a Seat, Feed a Family

FC Cincinnati, the Freestore Foodbank and Lindner Women in Business at the University of Cincinnati are partnering for the first “Fill a Seat, Feed a Family” campaign on Saturday September 17 at Nippert Stadium. That evening, FC Cincinnati is playing Orlando City B at 7:00pm for the last game of the regular season.  

Our goal on the 17th is simple –  Fill every seat and collect 23,375 cans—one for EVERY soccer seat at Nippert.  Volunteers will also collect monetary donations at the gate throughout the game.  Every dollar donated counts as a can towards the goal.
