PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- Phillies ace Aaron Nola will be leading an annual food drive at Citizens Bank Park this summer.
Nola was already familiar with the Philabundance building. He drives past it all the time on the way to the ballpark. But now he's learning about the inner workings of the hunger relief organization as its new Ambassador.
"For every ticket we sell the Phillies are gonna give $8 back to this program," Buck explained. "So that's 16 meals, for every ticket anybody buys 16 meals are done. The Phillies 50-50 charity drawing that night, proceeds are gonna go back to this program."
You can also bring non-perishable food to donate or buy food for families in need. Reps from a local supermarket will be stationed along Citizens Bank Way. In return for either of those options you'll get a discount of $8 off a future game this season.
