The New York Mets will host a food drive to benefit City Harvest on Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 11 through 13 at Citi Field.

Fans donating at least five nonperishable items will receive a voucher for two tickets to select September Mets home games, plus coupons for future use on Hain Celestial food products.

The Mets will be accepting food donations two hours before game time through the first inning at the following Citi Field entrances: Jackie Robinson Rotunda, Hodges VIP, Seaver VIP, Left Field Gate and the Bullpen Plaza.

“We always appreciate the opportunity to team up with our valued partners that have similar missions to be a part of important efforts that benefit our community,” said Lou DePaoli, Mets executive vice president and chief revenue officer. “Hunger is a serious issue and the Mets and Hain Celestial are fortunate to be in a position where we can make a difference in the lives of those around us.”

Fans may also donate food at Fairway Market locations throughout New York City through Saturday, July 12.

Welcome to the discussion.
