Stop & Shop and the Boston Red Sox team up to turn the Green Monster orange to raise awareness during Hunger Action Month

+

Quincy, Mass. - In honor of Hunger Action Month, Stop & Shop and the Boston Red Sox are continuing their commitment to fight hunger in our local communities with a special Hunger Action Month activation on September 17 at Fenway Park. For the first time ever, an "orange out" will occur on the Green Monster when ticketholders seated in the area will be gifted with orange t-shirts, the color of hunger relief, to raise awareness of hunger in the United States. Stop & Shop will also host a food drive at the ballpark, and ticketholders are encouraged to bring donations of non-perishable items to the collection bins at each entrance of Fenway Park, which will be donated directly to Boston Public Schools that are part of the Stop & Shop School Food Pantry Program. According to the USDA, more than 1 in 5 children lives in a food insecure household. Launched in 2019, the Stop & Shop School Food Pantry Program works directly with schools to establish and support food pantries to ensure that kids don't have to go to school hungry. Stop & Shop supports over 140 in-school pantries thus far in the City of Boston, Lynn, Fall River, and communities across New England.
