Game goers who bring two new boxes of pasta as a RICFB donation will get a free autographed picture of a PawSox player. The group of participating PawSox wives will collect donations at he main entrance to the stadium.

“Striking Out Hunger has really grown to be a community-wide effort, with food drives and events that will help make sure no Rhode Islander goes hungry,” says Andrew Schiff, CEO of RICFB, in a statement..

This is the sixth year of the Striking Out Hunger Campaign, which has raised $350,000 for the Food Bank over the last five years. The financial contributions result from a $75 donation from the Citizens Bank Foundation every time a PawSox pitcher strikes out a batter, up to a total of $75,000 this year. Every dollar raised enables the Food Bank to acquire three pounds of healthy food for a family in need.
