Join us to help "Strike Out Hunger" with the Cincinnati Reds!
St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Reds, WLWT, and 700WLW are partnering to “Strike Out Hunger” across Greater Cincinnati by hosting a food donation drive when the Reds play the Chicago Cubs on Friday, June 22 (7:10 p.m.) and Saturday, June 23 (4:10 p.m.) at Great American Ball Park.
Fans who donate a minimum of three non-perishable food items from the time gates open (90 minutes before first pitch) through the 4th inning will receive a free ticket to an upcoming Reds game, limit one ticket per person.
Donation barrels will be located outside the ballpark’s main entrance on Crosley Terrace.
Thanks to the generosity of Reds fans at the 2016 “Strike Out Hunger” food drive, we collected 7,250 pounds of food which provided more than 4,800 meals to struggling families in Cincinnati. St. Vincent de Paul operates many food pantries throughout Cincinnati, including the Edyth and Carl Lindner Choice Food Pantry in the West End, and eight neighborhood-based pantries. More than 1,000 parish-based volunteers visit their neighbors in need to provide basic necessities like food.
These donations help us meet the increased need for food donations in the summer. If you would like to hold a drive of your own, visit this page to get started.
