The Orioles annual Food & Funds Drive returns to provide meals to families in need

Fans are challenged to help the Orioles collect 10,000 pounds of food

The Baltimore Orioles, in collaboration with the Maryland Food Bank, today announced the return of the 37th annual Orioles Food & Funds Drive, driven by AAA Club Alliance Inc. This important event will take place at Oriole Park at Camden Yards during the weekend series against the New York Yankees from July 12-14.

Throughout the weekend, representatives from the Orioles, AAA, Giant Food, and the Maryland Food Bank will be stationed at multiple entrances of the ballpark, collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations from fans. Contributions will be accepted from the time the gates open until the end of the second inning.

“At AAA, the safety and well-being of the communities we serve is our top priority, whether at home or on the road,” says SCOTT LUGAR, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Membership, AAA Club Alliance. “We are honored to play a leading role in this important event and look forward to joining Orioles fans to make a difference in the lives of those in need.”

"Participation in the Food & Funds Drive is vital because it empowers us to work in partnership with corporations and our fans to create a powerful impact for those in our community who rely on these resources,” shared KERRY R. WATSON, JR., Orioles Executive Vice President of Public Affairs.

Fans are encouraged to bring some of the most needed items, including canned proteins, rice and pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, and cooking oil.

The Orioles are challenging fans to double last year’s food donation total of 5,525 pounds for the Maryland Food Bank, with a goal of collecting over 10,000 pounds. Giant Food has committed to matching all donations up to $25,000.
