MOST-NEEDED ITEMS

This summer, our most-needed food items include:

  • Cereal/Oatmeal
  • Canned Meat (chicken, ham, salmon, etc.)
  • Canned Fruit
  • Spices (salt, pepper, garlic)
  • Hearty Soups

Are you interested in volunteering with St. Vincent de Paul? Visit our Volunteer page to learn more and sign up: https://www.SVDPcincinnati.org/volunteer/

Join us at the ballpark on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13 for Strike Out Hunger!

Fans who donate a minimum of three non-perishable food items before the games on Friday and Saturday will receive a free ticket voucher for a future Reds game, with a limit of one voucher per person.

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 donated food will be distributed through St. Vincent de Paul’s Becky & Ted Catino Choice Food Pantry in the West End and St. Vincent de Paul’s network of 13 neighborhood-based food pantries throughout Greater Cincinnati.

In Hamilton County, there are nearly 115,000 residents who are experiencing food insecurity. That’s enough to fill all the seats in Great American Ball Park over two and a half times. The good news is, when we all pitch in, together we can make a huge difference.

Last summer, fans donated over 8,900 lbs. of food to the Strike Out Hunger food drive, enough to provide nearly 7,500 meals to neighbors in need. Let’s hit another homerun this year!

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