ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The St. Louis Cardinals are offering free game tickets for canned goods as part of the Home Run Against Hunger Food Drive.

The drive will be held before the Cardinals take on the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday. From 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. fans can drop off non-perishable donations in front of the Official Cardinals Team Store at the corner of 8th and Clark Street.

Fans who bring a non-perishable donation will receive a voucher for two tickets to an upcoming Cardinals game. The vouchers are limited to one per person.

Donations collected at the event will be distributed to one of over 1,500 Feeding Missouri agencies located throughout the state and will count toward a statewide grand total of donations, in pounds. The final donation amount will be announced at the conclusion of the event.

While most non-perishable donations are appreciated, some types of food items allow local pantries to best meet the needs of the communities they serve. These items include canned tuna and chicken, boxed or bagged pasta and rice, canned soup and chili, boxed crackers, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, bottled jelly, granola or snack bars, fruit snacks and instant mashed potatoes. Other non-perishable donations such as diapers, baby formula, toilet tissue and general hygiene products are welcomed as well.
