ST. LUCIE COUNTY - On June 27, baseball fans at Tradition Field will get a chance to see more than popcorn, peanuts and cracker jacks. They'll also get to see canned fruits and vegetables.

The St. Lucie and Martin chapters of Thrivent Financial are working with the St. Lucie Mets to hold its annual Food from Fans night. This is the sixth year the non-profit financial service company has held the food fundraiser, and the goal this year is to collect two tons of food.

The food drive enables baseball fans to enjoy a fun evening out while at the same time helping those in need.

On Thursday, June 27, baseball fans that bring two cans of food to the Thrivent Community table that will be set up by the front gate of the baseball stadium will receive one free admission ticket to that evening's scheduled game, which begins at 6:30 p.m.

At the game, baseball fans will see the St. Lucie Mets play against the Palm Beach Cardinals.

This is the only night and game that will be accepting these donations, and all dry goods and canned food collected will be donated to the Treasure Coast Food Bank, which serves all of the Treasure Coast, and the House of Hope, which serves Martin County residents.

Last year, approximately 1,000 baseball fans helped with the food drive.

Tradition Field is located at 525 N.W. Peacock Blvd. in Port St. Lucie.
