The Orioles are once again teaming up this fall with local nonprofits Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program and All Faiths Food Bank to fight hunger in Sarasota. To support the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program, the Orioles will collect non-perishable food items at Ed Smith Stadium beginning on Monday, November 5, and will host the charity’s Thanksgiving Sorting Day at the ballpark on Friday, November 16. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at Ed Smith Stadium on weekdays from 9am to 5pm. The collection station is located inside Café 54 on Euclid Avenue. Tickets are also on sale now for All Faiths Food Bank’s popular Bowls of Hope benefit, which will be held at Ed Smith Stadium on Sunday, December 2, from 11am to 2pm. Each year during Spring Training, the Orioles host a food collection drive for All Faiths Food Bank at Ed Smith Stadium, and fans attending Gulf Coast League and Fall Instructional League games also contribute. The Orioles’ support for All Faiths Food Bank and Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program is part of Sarasota 365, a host of initiatives through which the Baltimore Orioles and OriolesREACH demonstrate the ballclub’s year-round engagement with the Greater Sarasota community. An independent analysis commissioned by Sarasota County Government concluded that the Orioles generate approximately $97 million in annual economic impact back to taxpayers and residents.
