Food Drive

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin recommends the following items, but will take any nonperishable donations. Monetary donations will also be collected race day at Packet Pick-Up. $1 = 3 Meals for someone in need! Volunteers will be on hand collecting food and issuing raffle tickets just outside Miller Park at the Clock Tower entrance.
