24th Annual Orioles Wives Food Drive

The Maryland Food Bank, WJZ-TV and Baltimore Orioles advocates are once again teaming up to fight hunger during the 24th Annual Orioles Wives Food Drive. This year’s on-site drive takes place July 15 to 17 at Camden Yards during the Orioles vs. Cleveland Indians series. Tickets may be purchased here.

Most-needed food items are: peanut butter, canned chicken, canned tuna, oatmeal, breakfast cereals, and canned fruit and vegetables. Last year, the Orioles Food Drive collected more than 2,000 pounds of food and nearly $20,000 for the Maryland Food Bank.

Those who do not attend the games can contribute online at a virtual food drive. For every $10 of food purchased, contributors will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets and the chance to throw the first pitch at the July 15 game. The virtual food drive ends at 10 a.m., July 11, and the winner will be notified at that time.
