Support the Food Bank of the RGV and our UTRGV Baseball team at multiple Sunday home games this Spring; bring five non-perishable food items and receive a free ticket to the game.

Following Dates: 2/18, 2/25, 3/11, 3/25, 4/15, 4/29

Fans who donate five nonperishable food items at any Sunday UTRGV baseball home game will receive free general admission.

“The Food Bank RGV helps feed as many as 42,000 people per week.” said Omar Rodriguez, the Manager of Communications & Advocacy at the food bank. “The UTRGV baseball team has been one of our strongest partners and we hope to strike out hunger for many more seasons to come!”

It is estimated that one in four people in the Rio Grande Valley are food insecure, which means they either skip meals and/or buy less expensive, less nutritional foods due to financial struggles. It is also estimated that half of all children in the Rio Grande Valley go to bed hungry.

All donations collected through Strike Out Hunger go to the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley to help those in our community facing food insecurity.

For more information on how to donate to the Food Bank RGV, call (956) 682-8101.
