Food Bank Events 2018

Striking Out Hunger

Join the Pawtucket Red Sox, Citizens Bank and Cox Communications as they help the Rhode Island Community Food Bank STRIKE OUT HUNGER this summer!

Every time a PawSox pitcher strikes out a batter on the opposing team at a home game, Citizens Bank will donate 150 meals to the Food Bank. Up to 150,000 meals (or $60,000!).

Come out to support the winning team at every PawSox home game. And join us for a special night on the ball field:
