HOUSTON - The Astros are back in the Bayou City for a seven-game stretch at home. As the city recovers from this week's deadly flooding, the team is helping out by doing more than just winning games.

Now through June 4 the Astros are hosting a food drive for flood victims in the region. You can bring canned goods and non-perishable items to be donated at any of the upcoming games against the White Sox and Orioles. Food collection will begin 2 hours before the first pitch at entrance gates around Minute Maid Park.

You can also donate money if you'd prefer. All proceeds will benefit the Houston Food Bank.
