Philadelphia Phillies Food Drive to Benefit Philabundance
The ShopRite Partners In Caring Food Drive at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday, September 18 will feature buy one get one FREE game-day tickets for anyone who donates food. And the special day will include some special celebrity visits from Phillies great Mike Schmidt, the Phillie Phanatic, the Galapagos Gang, and the Philadelphia Zoo on Wheels. Fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation to the ShopRite Partners In Caring food drive on Citizens Bank Way, where family-friendly events, FREE food samples and giveaways will take place throughout the day.
The event is open to the public and game tickets are not required to access the ShopRite Partners In Caring Food Drive. The festive game-day food drive and block party will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. along Citizens Bank Way.
ShopRite and the Phillies host the ShopRite Partners In Caring Food Drive each year to benefit Philabundance. This year, those who bring a non-perishable food donation to the ballpark can also earn a FREE buy one get one free ticket voucher they can use for that day’s game against the Marlins or a future Phillies game during the regular 2016 season.
ShopRite collected enough food during last year’s drive to supply 1,500 meals for people in need in the Delaware Valley.
ShopRite is a proud sponsor of the Phillies and a longtime friend to Philabundance, the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley.
