redsoxwives.jpgFor two days this summer, the Red Sox Wives take over Fenway during the 17th Annual Can & Cash Drive, an effort to support The Greater Boston Food Bank - the largest hunger relief organization in New England and one of the largest food banks in the country. For two hours prior to games on July 30 and 31, and through the first inning, the Red Sox Wives will hand out an autographed photo of a player to any fan bringing 10 or more nonperishable food items, or a $10 donation to the Food Bank. This effort is stationed outside the gates, so that nonticket holding fans can also participate.

Last year's effort raised more than $25,000 which made possible 53,741 meals, and collected over 5,500 pounds of food. This year the Food Bank would like to focus on collecting more nutrient-rich foods such as canned tuna, peanut butter, beans, nonperishable whole grains, and shelf-stable dairy products.
