OSU vs Michigan: How you can be part of the action and help those less fortunate at the same time

CLEVELAND - Bragging rights are always on the line when Ohio State battles Michigan on the football field.

Another competition between fans of the two universities is also taking place this week. This battle involves food and helping others in need.

Old Stone Church in downtown Cleveland is holding its first-ever Buckeye Bucket vs. Wolverine Wagon food drive to benefit Cleveland Foodbank.

It is a food drive with a twist.

Donations of unexpired, non-perishable food items, can be brought to the Old Stone Church at 91 Public Square in downtown Cleveland and placed in either the Buckeye Bucket or the Wolverine Wagon. The top six most needed foods are cans of beef stew, peanut butter, cereal, tuna, canned soup and canned vegetables.

At the end of each day church officials will count the number of donations for each school and post the results on the church's website. Check the church's website for a list of the most-needed items.

You can drop off items Monday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Saturday from 4 to 5 p.m.
