Mets food drive this weekend

I9NDZCRThe Mets and Hain Celestial through its relationship with Island Harvest will present the 2014 New York Mets Food Drive to help alleviate hunger throughout the New York area.

From July 11-13, New York Mets employees, Mets wives, SNY and Hain Celestial employees will collect non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations at each of the gates at Citi Field as well at participating local Fairway Supermarkets to benefit Island Harvest. As part of the food drive, all fans who make donations will receive a “buy one, get one free” ticket offer from the Mets.

A sustained, high need for food has become the new normal for many New Yorkers with 3 million living in areas where fresh, affordable food is difficult to access. As more people are affected by the challenging economy, the need for emergency food has increase dramatically.
