Orioles to host All Faiths Food Drive Thursday

|

On Thursday, March 27, the Orioles will host the 4th annual All Faiths Food Drive to help people in need in the Sarasota area. All fans attending the 7:05 p.m. game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Ed Smith Stadium are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations to benefit the All Faiths Food Bank.

Since 2011, 2,400 pounds of food and $3,500 in cash donations have been collected at the yearly food drive to help people in need in the Sarasota area. Last year, All Faiths Food Bank distributed 7 million pounds of food equating to nearly 5.8 million meals. More than 3,100 volunteers and 195 partner agencies and programs in Sarasota and DeSoto counties support the Food Bank's mission.

The Orioles' participation in the All Faiths Food Drive is part of Sarasota 365, a host of initiatives through which the Baltimore Orioles and OriolesREACH demonstrate the ballclub's year-round engagement with the Greater Sarasota community. Whether hosting youth activities, participating in charitable causes or partnering in efforts to boost the local economy, the Orioles are active in the region all year long, proving that their commitment to the club's southern home goes far beyond baseball.
