Strike Out Hunger 2024 will take place on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13. 

COLLECTION SITES: Volunteers will be located near the ballpark’s main entrance on Crosley Terrace, as well as along Joe Nuxhall Way near the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum to accept donations. Donations will be collected from 5:00-7:30 p.m. on Friday and 2:00-4:30 p.m. on Saturday.

All food collected will be distributed through our Becky & Ted Catino Choice Food Pantry and St. Vincent de Paul’s network of 13 neighborhood food pantries around the city. This collection is essential as summer is a critical time for neighbors who are struggling. When schools are out, many families must find ways to feed their children, who might otherwise receive free or reduced breakfasts or lunches at school. In 2023, Reds fans collected nearly 9,000 lbs. of food, enough to provide nearly 7,500 meals for our neighbors!

Thank you, Reds fans, for your ongoing support and generosity!
