Step Right Up and Help the Mets

The Mets are teaming with their community partners at City Harvest [1] to help out New Yorkers suffering from the aftereffects of Super Storm Sandy. The Mets are asking for their fans’ help, too, with a food drive on Wednesday, November 14, between 9 AM and 5 PM, at Citi Field’s Hodges entrance on the first base side of the ballpark.

Details, from the club:

Fans donating 10 items or more of nonperishable nutritious food will receive a voucher redeemable for one pair of tickets to a select Mets game in April 2013. Donors will also receive 15% off select merchandise at the Mets Team Store at Citi Field. Season Ticket Holders who donate food can show their ID card to get 20% off select items. The discount will only be honored Wednesday, November 14. 

Among the items most needed are: canned fruit and vegetables, plastic jars of peanut butter, packages of hot or cold cereal, and packages of macaroni and cheese. Items that will not be accepted are: unlabeled, expired, or dented cans; any open packaging; products that need to be refrigerated; or homemade products.

Fans dropping off food may park in Lot G on 126th Street between the Right Field Gate and Roosevelt Avenue.

If you can help, your team and your neighbors will appreciate it greatly. Thank you.
